Street of the Five Moons Paperback
Part of the Vicky Bliss Murder Mystery S. series
What did it mean? The note with the hieroglyphs was found in the pocket of a man lying dead in an alley.
The only other item of interest on him was a piece of jewellery, a reproduction of the Charlemagne talisman, but so well done that Vicky Bliss thought she was being shown the real thing.
The gold work had been done by a master craftsman; the stones were of top quality synthetic...Vicky didn't know what it meant yet, but ion the sundrenched streets and moonlit courtyards of Rome, she was going to find out - if the dangerously exciting Englishman didn't get in her way!

Review by Heptonj
This is the second 'Vicky Bliss' novel I have read with another one to go. I can't make up my mind if I like this series or not. The books are a quick, light read and entertaining in a way but like the first one, this one seems to lack something - I thought it might get a bit deeper. Intrigue in Italy beginning with a near-perfect copy of a famous piece of jewellery being found on a dead man and a host of unlikely and unsavoury characters make this book flow easily. The addition of a 'gentleman' thief into the heroines' life is a nice touch.

Light-hearted frothy mystery with wise-cracking Vicky Bliss detecting an art fraud in Italy.
