Meet art historian Vicky Bliss, She is as beautiful as she is brainy--with unassailable courage, insatiable curiosity, and an expertise in lost museum treasures that often leads her into the most dangerous of situations.

A missing masterwork in wood, the last creation of a master carver who died in the violent tumult of the sixteenth century, may be hidden in a medieval German castle in the town of Rothenburg. The prize has called to Vicky Bliss, drawing her and an arrogant male colleague into the forbidding citadel and its dark secrets. But the treasure hunt soon turns deadly. Here, where the blood of the long forgotten damned stains ancient stones, Vicky must face two equally perilous possibilities. Either a powerful supernatural evil inhabits this place. . .or someone frighteningly real is willing to kill for what Vicky is determined to find.

Reviews

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Fun and entertaining - an easy read I picked this up because I adore Elizabeth Peter's other series about the Emerson family, and the character of Vicky Bliss sounded different, but still interesting enough for me to give her a try. I enjoyed the book. Vicky, an American is just as spunky and unorthodox as Amelia but in a completely different flavour. Her rivalry with Tony, although certainly entertaining, doesn't have quite the same level of amusement and snap as the one between Amelia and Emerson. Still, the story was fun, and the shenanigans that go on in the German manse where everyone is frantically, and in some cases murderously searching for a priceless piece of religious art are worth reading. I will probably give another Vicky Bliss story a try, although Amelia and Emerson are still my favourites!!
