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.

Barbara took liberties with Street Of Five Moons, 1978, that compromised the mystery, its atmosphere, and believability. The interesting axis are a dead foreigner, a pristinely-forged jewel, and the novel's mystical-sounding title. All three were dropped and there was nothing surreal about them. At the end of the first book I thought I liked Vicky and was looking forward to reading further in the series since I hear it gets better. Unfortunately, this book put the cabash on that thought. I highly recommend Elizabeth Peters already because of my love for her other character, Amelia Peabody, and now I have another reason to love this author.

This is not the first Elizabeth Peters' book I've listened to on Audible, but it was the first Vicky Bliss story. It was a really fun adventure with a few moments of worry for her safety because she does seem to walk right into it. It helps to have an interest in a history, museums, antiquities, and exotic locations in Italy. The character development is quite good, so you care about the people you think you should be caring about--even though they may turn out to be villains. I like to listen to mysteries when I am exercising--keeps me at it for a longer time. I will choose to buy some of the other Vicky Bliss novels--they will be good for this purpose.
I began reading the Vicky Bliss series after completing the Amelia Peabody books. Obviously I am a fan of Peters' style. This book is written in first person, and the style of Vicky's narration seems breezier and a bit more light-hearted than the Peabody books.

Vicky is a somewhat different version of Amelia, but her character doesn't seem as well-developed as Amelia. Perhaps it is because Amelia had a larger group of family/servants/colleagues. But in many respects, Vicky's adventures are as exciting as Amelia's.

In this book, Vicky is off to Rome searching for the person behind an excellent reproduction of a piece of jewelry. Her adventures tracking down the culprit lead her into a meeting with an interesting set of characters (including Sir John who becomes a regular in this series). The book is a fun read and kept my interest to follow the series through the next four books.
This book is part of a series that I really enjoy rereading. The characters are great, I loved them all, even the bad guys! Especially one bad guy, John, who isn't really bad just not particularly inclined toward regular employment. He is, however terribly intelligent and quite intrigued by Vicky (our heroine). Vicky is a blonde bombshell with a brain, but that doesn't stop her from getting in over her head rather quickly and John spends the rest of the book trying to get her out of the clutches of the criminals without getting killed himself. Elizabeth Peters was a master storyteller with a wonderful dry wit. And no one does innuendo better.
This is the 2nd book in the Vicky Bliss series, and even though it's been around for a while, there's not much in it to 'date' it, so it's just as enjoyable now as it was when first published. Elizabeth Peters wrote the first book (Borrower of the Night), and a couple of sequels, then let the Vicky Bliss novels rest for many years, until returning to them again fairly recently. There's no trace of the gap. All are filled with humor and wit. The characters are well-rounded and (mostly!) believeable. The mystery is always tied to the art/antiquities world, and the snapshots of the foreign cities and countries in which the action occurs are always vivid. Elizabeth Peters is a 'must-read' author for those who like a light, fun, take on mystery and romance (with just a dash of education thrown in). As this is the book that begins to make this a 'series', new characters are introduced who will weave in and out of all subsequent volumes, along with some 'old friends' from the first volume.
In this fast-paced adventure, Vicky Bliss goes to Rome and tangles with a scheme involving fake antique jewellery and "John Smythe". (If you've already read the Amelia books, you'll be reminded of a favorite character.)
Even though this series holds no surprises, it is a guilty pleasure for me. I've been reading Elizabeth Peters for years, and I find All of her work quite predictable with outrageously cartoonish characters. That being said, I continue to read her books!! I do enjoy the exotic settings, and her knowledge of Egyptology is a definite plus. She provides pure escapism with a sense of fun and adventure.
Our protagonist, gorgeous and brainy, Vicky Bliss is again on the move when she and her boss from the National Museum of Munich discover that someone is making excellent copies of the most famous jewels in the world. In this case it's a replica of the Charlemagne talisman. Vicky's who has a PhD in Art History and Medieval European History is also an amateur sleuth. With the only clue that she has, she goes to Rome to locate the street of the Five Moons where she hopes to find a connection to the thieves. Well, of course she gets into trouble and is rescued by a "dangerously exciting young Englishman." Sir John Smythe is truly charming and the chemistry between he and Vicky is terrific. This is a lovely romantic mystery and the second book in the Vicky Bliss mystery series.
Another great story by Elizabeth Peters who is also Barbara Michaels!
I love everything Barbara Peters has written. The Vicky Bliss mysteries are great fun and full of suspense with a very intelligent and appealing heroine!
