Another awesome one. I can’t help it, I just love these books. John! Schmidt! Vicky! [Dec. 2008]<br/><br/>-----<br/><br/>Another Vicky Bliss mystery. I will admit that I’m less enamoured of Vicky on this read-through. For one thing, I get really tired of her complaining about people underestimating her because she’s tall. But I think that’s almost a separate post, so I’ll leave it for now. [Oct. 2009]
All the familiar elements are here - a group of suspects, an isolated location, treasure. Yet Ms. Peters makes it fresh and fun - she hints at things, she plays with her characters, and it's amusing as well as suspenseful. The romantic side story with John is given a long-awaited push, which is a nice reward for those have read the previous novels in the series.
The third book in the Vicky Bliss series, this book unites Vicky and John with her old flame, Tony, and her boss, Schmidt, in the search for the lost gold of Troy.This novel is excellent- it brings back the character of Tony from the first Vicky novel, and adds to the mix other historians. The suspense is great, and the relationship between Vicky and John reaches a new level. This is an awesome book!
Vicky Bliss is back in action--this time she doesn't even have to leave Germany. She gets a picture in the mail that looks very much like the famous photograph of Frau Schliemann wearing the Trojan Gold. But it is another woman, and this gets Vicky to thinking that the long missing Trojan gold might be found. Of course, John Smythe is on hand for love and adventure. A good entry in the series.
