Overview

Street of the Five Moons (Vicky Bliss Series #2) by Elizabeth Peters

Art historian Vicky Bliss may be blond and beautiful, but looks can be deceiving. She also has the brain of an Einstein, the reckless courage of a test pilot—and no one's more savvy about fine works of art. For example: the gold pendant her boss at Munich's National Museum is currently dangling in front of her. It's an exquisite replica of a Charlemagne talisman—and it was found, along with a note written in hieroglyphs, sewn into the suit pocket of an unidentified man lying dead in an alley.

There's a murderous puzzle to unravel—and Vicky will start by hunting down the master craftsperson who created the magnificent piece, even if the search carries her to the ends of the Earth. Instead, it's pointing her toward Rome, the most romantic city in the world. But it's also pulling her into a treacherous game of intrigue where the stakes could not be higher: Vicky's life!

The author must have done a good job when I start getting irritated by how poorly the main character is being treated. She has to be believable for me to care. This is quite an adventure, requiring quick thinking on the part of Vicky Bliss. Who to trust? Who to believe? How to stay alive?! A fine adventure.

This is one of my all time favorite books. It is the 2nd book in the Vicky Bliss series, but really starts the series to me. This book has everything! It is fun to read. It is light and fun without insulting your intelligence. I consider it a mystery romance. And the series only gets better from here.

Ms. Petes' books are well crafted and excelent reading. They are a little dated, but they reflect a well-remembered part of my lifetime, so that's OK.
