The Charlemagne talisman, with its gold filigree volutes and enormous azure-blue sapphire, has caught Vicky Bliss' attention. When a man is found murdered with an enchanting copy of the antiquity in his pocket, along with an odd set of hieroglyphs, Vicky follows the trail of the gifted genius who created the fake to the narrow streets of the anitquity markets in Rome.

With her unusual qualifications, a doctorate in art history and the body of a movie goddess, Vicky is well equipped for getting the information she needs from anyone, particularly the older men who typically deal in antiques. But in #37 on the Street of the Five Moons, Vicky meets a dangerously exciting young Englishman, a man whose scruples are as questionable as his intelligence is keen.

Read by Barbara Rosenblat with the acclaimed talent that has made her Elizabeth Peters' only choice to read the Vicky Bliss series, Street of the Five Moons will delight the listener with a full measure of witty repartee and memorable characters.

Listener Opinions

    " Liked this one better than the first Vicky Bliss book. Hope that John Smythe makes a reappearance in future books. I love Elizabeth Peters style of writing and can't believe that it has taken me this long to read this series!! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lucy | 2/5/2014

    " #2 for Vicky Bliss--naturally, we want to like Vicky, and a part of us does, but another part of us prefers the short, curvaceous, dark-haired Amelia.... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Patti | 2/3/2014

    " Much better than the first! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Vi | 2/2/2014

    " A great mystery that was much more action-packed and interesting than the first one in this series. However, I don't think I could classify it as "amazing" so no 5/5. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Aelliana | 1/14/2014

    " A quick and fun read. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 JackieB | 1/10/2014

    " Dire. Vicky Bliss came across as a whining idiot and the plot was mainly driven my her doing stupid things. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Robin | 1/4/2014

    " A book for those nostalgic for Rider Haggard novels. A fun read, but not the best of the Vicky Bliss series. It does have some good throw-away lines. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Katie | 12/31/2013

    " John Smith did you say your name was? Vain, cowardly, thief who's way over his head dealing with some pretty nasty characters? I may just have to stick around for the next five books. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Natalie | 12/9/2013

    " Ah, that's more like it. A great improvement over the first book. Definitely meant to be taken lightly with enough mystery to keep interest up. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Deb | 10/9/2013

    " I thought this was dated and silly. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Michelle | 9/24/2013

    " another exciting Vicky Bliss mystery "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Bonnie | 9/18/2013

    " I love Elizabeth Peters' Amelia Peabody series but have read or listened to all but the last book so I decided to try the Vicki Bliss series. I'd listened to one and hadn't really liked it, but decided to give it another chance. I'm glad I did since this book was quite entertaining. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kimberly | 9/9/2013

    " Nice book - light reading. It makes you feel like watching an old episode of Moonlighting with Bruce Willis and Cybil Shepard. Looking forward to reading the rest of the series as the relationship between Vicky and John develops. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Heather | 8/30/2013

    " Enter the two best characters in the series: Caesar the dog and John the love interest. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Barbara | 6/13/2013

    " Enjoyed Elizabeth Peters' first book Borrower of the Night very much so "borrowed" this audible book from the library. I should have let a little more time go between the two books!!! What happened to Tony? "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Hannah | 5/23/2013

    " Very engaging, couldn't put it down from the very first chapter "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Patty | 4/24/2013

    " A bit disappointing after the first in the series. I will hang on and see if ti was simply an aberration. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Carol | 2/17/2013

    " It was OK but I didn't like the ending. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kribu | 10/9/2012

    " I liked this less than the first Vicky Bliss book. Still readable, and I like Vicky herself, but I didn't really warm to John Smythe and a lot of the plot left me rather cold. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Stacia | 8/4/2012

    " I have read this entire series..Just awesome "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Hilly | 12/30/2011

    " 4.5 stars. Rounded up for humor. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jess | 11/9/2011

    " A fun follow-up to Borrower of the Night, and an enjoyable audio version. The focus is really more on the characters than it is on the mystery, and everything is slightly wacky and over-the-top. Just what I'm looking for in my fluff reading. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Arlene Allen | 8/31/2011

    " Did I already mention I love Vicky Bliss? "When I find myself in times of trouble, Vicky Bliss does come to me, speaking words of wisdom....doing a little b&e, save a few lives, and sleep with the hot theif with the heart of gold." (Ms. Peters do you mind if I picture Cary Elwes?) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Laurel | 8/2/2011

    " Definitely like this author and like this character too. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jeanne | 4/9/2011

    " I love these books primarily for the European locations. The humor is also appealing. Cell phones aside, you'd never know that this book was written in 1978. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 JackieB | 12/8/2010

    " Dire. Vicky Bliss came across as a whining idiot and the plot was mainly driven my her doing stupid things. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Hannah | 11/2/2010

    " Very engaging, couldn't put it down from the very first chapter "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Bonnie | 10/23/2010

    " Staring to enjoy this author more and more. Very fun read for art historians and lovers of european cities and european lore. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kristina | 9/10/2010

    " The appearance of John Smith. If you read other Elizabeth Peters/Barbara Michaels novels, you will notice that John pops into other ones here and there. It's pretty funny "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Martha | 2/3/2010

    " Well, I think I've finished up on this series...too much similarity of plots and predictability of how it's going to turn out. Author has run this character into the ground. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Carol | 1/11/2010

    " It was OK but I didn't like the ending. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 April | 12/10/2009

    " Set in Rome, the book has the appeal of Italy. I wouldn't mind going back to Italy, but I think I would avoid involving myself in any shady investigations. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Katie | 12/9/2009

    " John Smith did you say your name was? Vain, cowardly, thief who's way over his head dealing with some pretty nasty characters? I may just have to stick around for the next five books. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Chris | 11/6/2009

    " As with the first book, this second Vicky Bliss book continues to be the Scooby Doo type mystery that is easy to read for some simple reading when you have nothing more important to read. I will probably continue the series, but only when I have nothing else available to read on my list. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Vi | 9/16/2009

    " A great mystery that was much more action-packed and interesting than the first one in this series. However, I don't think I could classify it as "amazing" so no 5/5. "
