3.5 stars- I actually listened to the Audio Book and it started out very slow. It took me several tries listening to it to get into it. After the first disc though, i started enjoying it and ended up really liking it. Im going to try the second book and I hope it is a little more polished.
I read this book years ago, but it was definitely time for a re-read. While the Amelia Peabody series seems to get the bulk of the attention with regard to Elizabeth Peters' work, I've always preferred Vicky Bliss, Jacqueline Kirby, and her various other characters.This book, which introduces Vicky ...
This was a decent mystery but I didn't love Vicky the way I love Amelia Peabody. I've heard that the series picks up after this one so I'm definitely up for further reading.

The story was slow to start, but it got better. Still, I'm glad I started the series with book number two. Would have been nice to have read this before no. 4, since Tony shows up there, but it's not importent for the plot.
