A picture is worth a thousand words . . . but the photograph art historian Vicky Bliss has just received in the mail gives rise to a thousand questions instead. At first glance it appears to be the famous portrait of Frau Schliemann adorned in the gold of Troy. But closer study reveals the picture to be contemporary—which is odd since Vicky knows the Trojan gold vanished sometime around the end of World War Two. And if she needed further proof that something here is terribly amiss, a quick look at the blood-stained envelope the photo arrived in should do the trick.

Yet Vicky is not the only expert to receive this mysterious mailing. And the entire circle is gathering for a festive Bavarian Christmas—one, hopefully, to be made even more festive by the rediscovery of an ancient lost treasure. But the celebration could prove to be short—and bloody—courtesy of a very determined killer in their midst . . .

Reviews

Rated 4 out of 5 by from An Early Vicky Bliss Mystery I heard fabulous reviews about the newest Vicky Bliss book and I decided that I should read at least one of the early ones before I read the first one. Vicky Bliss is an American who works at a museum in Bavaria, Germany. She works with paintings - I never did quite figure out her profession but she works with museum stuff. This book is quite old and feels like it older but I really enjoyed it. Vicky gets a picture of a woman wearing Trojan Gold - a treasure that had been lost since the Russians took Berlin at the end of WWII. She has a mysterious art-thief lover who everyone presumes is dead. She has a crazy boss who likes to dress up in costume and follow her, thinking that she is working on the mystery. Throw in tons of other crazy characters and lots of Bavarian scenery and you have quite the enjoyable novel. I'm definitely going to read more Vicky Bliss mysteries.
