    The first of a fantastic series

    Elizabeth Peters is a great writer, the type who educates you as she entertains you. Vicky is an historian (not an art historian) at a small college. She and her colleague discover a reference to a series of letters from the 16th century which sets them off on a search for an alterpiece by the great German artist, Tilman Riemenschneider. The search leads them to a castle in Germany and encounters with a range of bizarre characters. Vicky is a great heroine: smart, beautiful, funny, self-assured and independent. This is the first book in the series and while it's not the greatest book in the series, it is still wonderful. I can't recommend this highly enough!

    Fantastic, though not quite as good as Amelia Peabody

    I amm completely and utterly IN LOVE with Elizabeth Peters's Amelia Peabody series, so I decided to try this--and I loved it also! Though not as great as Amelia P., it has the same witty characters---including Peters' trademark protaganist: the intelligent, feministic female. Recomended.

    Interesting

    While the book had some slow spots and was a bit confusing at times, overall it was a good mystery. I do think the romance aspect could use some work.

    enjoyable, quick read

    This is another fun read by Elizabeth Peters. One of the things I appreciate about her books is that you always learn a little bit about a piece of history while enjoying a romp through the countryside with witty characters. This book plays tongue in cheek with all the standards tropes of haunted castles/houses while searching for a lost treasure.

    Loved it!

    This book was great! I don't know what to say except that. Now all I have to do is find out what order the other books go in....
