Publisher Description

For vibrant, lovely Jean Suttman, the fellowship to study in Rome was the culmination of her dreams, until she undertook an innocent expedition to the ancient Temple of Mithra. From the moment she stepped into the pagan darkness and discovered the corpse of Albert, one of her fellow students, she was afraid.

Not even the comforting presence of the perceptive and practical Jacqueline Kirby could erase the fear that was nourished by one small accident after another, “accidents” that came dreadfully close to killing her. Someone was stalking Jean, someone ruthless and determined. Before long she could see no chance of rescue from the ever-present terror, no hope of escape, nothing but death.

    " I liked Peter's Amelia Peabody series but I was less than impressed with Jacqueline Kirby. Wordy and drawn out and the mystery wasn't even that interesting. I'll pass on the rest of the series. "

    " A light, easy murder mystery with a little too much hidden to be as much fun as it could have been. "

    " hoped to like this more since i love Peters' Vickie Bliss series, but just couldn't get into it and found it to be kind of silly. "

    " I love the female protaganists in Peters's books, no matter how dated the books may be. She has not written as many books with the Kirby character found in this book but she's one of my favorites. "

    " This is part of her Jacqueline Kirby series. I have only read one so far but it is great. Can't wait to pick up the next one. I will be working on this series and her Amelia Peabody series. I plan to read everything Elizabeth Peters has written. "

    " Jaqueline "Jake" Kirby is a neat librarian. "Naked Once More" is the best of the 4 Jake Kirby mysteries but this first one is good, too. "
