The best Vicky Bliss Book in the series

I love this book in the serious the very best, It is faster-paced and more drama and mystery than some of the others. The usual characters in this book are on the top of their game and I have enjoyed this book the best! I am in the middle of the last book....Laughter of the Dead Kings....which is good as well.

A Journey to Sweden with Vicky Bliss

The third Vicky Bliss story, this novel sends Vicky to Sweden to find out what John is up to now. When she gets a call from "Cousin Gus", she knows that she must keep this man from being swindled. What she ends up in is a web of intrigue that John was unaware of. This novel continues the developing relationship between Vicky and John, a criminal with a heart of gold. Vicky is, as always, independent and resourceful. The book is a fun read!

The Continuing Adventures of Vicky

Vicky Bliss, an art historian now working at a Munich museum, is a bit frustrated with the dull, rainy late spring Munich weather. Life is a bit boring after some of her recent adventures but that changes when she opens a package containing a one-way ticket (coach) to Sweden, a two word Latin message and a single red rose. This has to be the work of the mysterious John Smythe so naturally Vicky is soon on her way to Stockholm. Others seem to be interested in her travel plans as well and Vicky quickly finds herself again involved in international intrigues of amazing proportions.As with the rest of this series there are complicated intrigues, amazing conicidences, exciting chases and a cliff hanging ending all linked by Vicky wry observations on life and love.

Silhouette In Scarlet

I loved this Vicky Bliss Mystery and it is my second favorite of them all. Max,the boss, Leaf,the villian, and Sir John Smythe, the lover, all set the scene for this witty and interesting mystery. This story takes place in Sweden, where Vicky gets involved in a plot to dig up a field of tresure. Vicky meets vital characters in this story and it is not one to overlook.

Phooey on the 11/10/98 review...

...apart from "Trojan Gold", this is the 2nd best Vicki Bliss book. My only gripe is that we see so little of Herr Doktor Anton Schmit. He's so cute! The interplay between Vicki and "Sir" John is acidic and rapier as usual, but the reader always knows they're crazy about each other. I enjoyed learning more about Sweden, which is a country I know very little about. If you enjoy the Vicki Bliss series, I believe you'll really like this one too! I'm tired of Amelia Peabody -bring back Vicki, please, Ms. Peters!
