Couldn't Stop Listening
The setting is a German museum, where our sleuth gets a photo of an ancient treasure in the mail. The envelope is tinged with blood and on closer inspection, the treasure in shown being worn by a contemporary woman....and our sleuth is off to a ski chalet in the mountains of Germany chasing clues. Followed by a known jewel thief and an unknown treasure hunter, Vicky tries to track down the ancient gold of Troy. She also has to worry about keeping her boss, a funny litte Santa of a man who fancies he is Sherlock Holmes, and herself safe. Amongst all this treasure hunting, we are treated to a wonderful description of Christmas in a small German town, and a variety of characters that are fun to meet. As usual, Barbara Rosenblatt is an awesome reader.

Elizabeth Peters' Amelia Peabody series is my favorite; however, the Vicky Bliss series is very good also. I especially liked Tojan Gold because it best features Vicky's boss, Herr Professor Schmidt, a truly hilarious character that needs to be featured more often.
