More from Vicky Bliss,the new heroine from the creator of the bestselling “Amelia Peabody” series.
A picture is worth a thousand words—but the photograph art historian Vicky Bliss has just received gives rise to a thousand questions instead. A quick glance at the blood-stained envelope is all the proof she needs that something is horribly wrong. The photo itself is familiar: a woman adorned in the gold of Troy. Yet this isn’t the famous photograph of Frau Schliemann—this photo is contemporary. And the gold, as Vicky and her fellow academics know, disappeared at the end of World War II. Now a circle of experts is gathered for a festive Bavarian Christmas. And so is a very determined killer…

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Arwen | 12/29/2013

    " One of my favorites in the Vicky Bliss series. I can't decide whether I like Trojan Gold or Laughter of Dead Kings better. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rachel | 12/19/2013

    " Fun, light, comedic mystery. And with a very sexy leading man! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Karyn Silverman | 12/11/2013

    " One of my all-time faves. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Bonnie | 12/4/2013

    " Another Vicky Bliss mystery. Fun, action, German culture, murder, mayhem, intrigue. Am quite enjoying this respite from more serious reading. My book club just happens to be choosing books that I've already read, so am taking advantage of the free time, to read with frivolity, while at the same time actually reading some serious Old Testament (also, murder, mayhem, intrigue!) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Stacey Williams | 11/28/2013

    " This book was recommended by my mother in law. I really enjoyed reading it. It was suspenseful and left me wanting to read more books about Vicky Bliss. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Deb | 11/26/2013

    " I am an ardent fan of Elizabeth Peters' Amelia Peabody series, but I don't remember reading any novels featuring Vicky Bliss before. On the down side, this isn't the first book in the series, so there seemed to be a great deal of backstory that I've missed. On the up side, the book made me laugh in several places. It is a mystery-adventure, and there is murder and mayhem, but there's farce too. A nice escape! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Susan | 11/25/2013

    " Vicky Bliss is back in action--this time she doesn't even have to leave Germany. She gets a picture in the mail that looks very much like the famous photograph of Frau Schliemann wearing the Trojan Gold. But it is another woman, and this gets Vicky to thinking that the long missing Trojan gold might be found. Of course, John Smythe is on hand for love and adventure. A good entry in the series. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Russamun82 | 11/9/2013

    " A good story with lots of interesting characters, many of whom have been introduced in past novels. I do enjoy to learn more about the characters. Like catching up with old friends. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 RachelAnne | 9/21/2013

    " I love this book. Ultimate comfort reading. Yes, the real gold was "re-discovered" in Moscow in 1993, but I like Elizabeth Peters' explanation better. Nobody does archaeological/art-historical derring-do and intrigue more convincingly, romantically and thrillingly. Perfect, sublime comfort reading. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Felicia | 7/9/2013

    " As I start downloading lady mysteries, I am reminded that this is one of my favorite series and this one of my favorite books of it. These characters sparkle together like few others do. Great mystery, great romance. Setting the bar high as I revisit the genre! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Rosalie | 7/1/2013

    " This was a Vicki Bliss book and I didn't care for it nearly as much as the Amelia Peabody books. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Stephen | 4/5/2013

    " All in all a decent mystery. It was a little run of the mill, but the history of the Troy necklace was interesting. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Katie | 2/9/2013

    " Absolutely ridiculous, is the only way to describe the plot of this book. But that doesn't stop it from being hilarious and entertaining, like watching an Indiana Jones movie. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Arlene Allen | 2/6/2013

    " Ms. Peters, I am not tall, bosomy or blond, but if they make a movie I want to play Vicky. So I can really kiss Cary Elwes who will play Lord John. 'kay? "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lucy | 12/27/2012

    " #4 in the Vicky Bliss series, and a very good one, at that. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Bridget | 9/28/2012

    " I am always stuck trying to decide if this is my favorite Vicky Bliss story, or if it comes in second. The plot is light and lags in places, but the dialogue and situations from our heroine are great reads. Highly recommended. "

    " So I read this several years ago, and now I listened to the recording of it. The narrator is FABULOUS--she had to do German, British, American, and French accents, and they were brilliant! The story was good, of course--set in Munich about Vicky Bliss. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sarah Sammis | 1/1/2012
