From the Back Cover
Vicky Bliss, a brain with a body like a centerfold, often has a tough time getting people to take her seriously. But when it comes to medieval history, this blonde beauty knows her stuff -- and she's a master at solving mysteries that turn the art world upside-down.
Vicky gasped at the sight of the exquisite gold pendant her boss at Munich's National Museum held in his hand. The Charlemagne talisman replica, along with a note in hieroglyphs, was found sewn into the suit pocket of an unidentified man found dead in an alley.
Vicky vows to find the master craftsman who created it. It's a daring chase that takes her all the way to Rome and through the dusty antique centers and moonlit streets of the most romantic city in the world. But soon she's trapped in a treacherous game of intrigue that could cost her life -- or her heart... --This text refers to an alternate Mass Market Paperback edition.

Vicky is a somewhat different version of Amelia, but her character doesn't seem as well-developed as Amelia. Perhaps it is because Amelia had a larger group of family/servants/colleagues. But in many respects, Vicky's adventures are as exciting as Amelia's.
In this book, Vicky is off to Rome searching for the person behind an excellent reproduction of a piece of jewelry. Her adventures tracking down the culprit lead her into a meeting with an interesting set of characters (including Sir John who becomes a regular in this series). The book is a fun read and kept my interest to follow the series through the next four books.
Loved the setting of the novel, the references to art and culture. The highlight of the novel was the repartee between the ambiguous John and Vicky. Some of their dialogue and snarky asides were priceless.
Written in a light hearted vein which I enjoyed. A refreshing departure from my usual reading fare. You often forget just how engaging some of these "older" novels are.
Another great story by Elizabeth Peters who is also Barbara Michaels!
