Publisher Description

On a trail that leads from modern wonders to ancient mystery, a determined young woman and an arrogant "prince" must uncover shocking secrets carefully guarded in a beautiful Danish city.

Elizabeth Jones, vacationing from her New York publishing job, is off to do touristy things in Denmark: gawk at the Little Mermaid, stroll in the Tivoli … look for a missing person?

By a strange twist of fate—and luck—the plane ride introduces Elizabeth to her idol, Nobel Prize–winning historian and famed eccentric Margaret Rosenberg, as well as to her long-suffering but handsome son, Christian. But luck can change in an instant. Margaret soon vanishes in Copenhagen, so Elizabeth joins the irascible Christian in searching the city, from underground crypts to the graves of queens. What they encounter is a baffling ransom demanding a bathrobe, not money, and what they dig up will connect a modern disappearance with an ancient artifact, along with the oldest of motives for crime.

    " I think this will be the year of Elizabeth Peters. I'm still not tired of her. This was not part of the PEabody-Emerson series. It is a stand alone that is just as quirky, entertaining and fast as the others. A difficult young man with a delightfully crazy mother and Elizabeth the heroine. Set in Cophenhagen. Again the descriptions are so visual. The mystery clever. "

    " Out of all the Elizabeth Peter's books I've read thus far, this one was probably my favorite. It think it was because of how well I connected to the crazy-author, and the main character. The romance was fun and not forced, and I felt it moved faster than her other books. "
