Adventure and romance enter Vicky Bliss' life in the form of a black-and-white photograph of a woman covered from head to toe in gold jewels. This "Trojan Gold" has an intriguing history, but it is the envelope that piques Vicky's curiosity. It is a grimy brown, with no return address, and it appears to have been soaked in blood.

This time, it's Vicky who involves John in a dangerous search for lost treasure. John, we are learning, hides his feelings behind sardonic wit just as Vicky shrouds hers in snappy humor and oneupsmanship. This is my favorite of the five-book series, perhaps because it puts John, Schmidt, AND Tony in a small Bavarian ski resort with Vicky and SUSPECTS. PoorTony! This is Tony at his most vulnerable and least attractive--and John thinks Tony may be one of the villains. Vicky thinks John may be--and Schmidt has a gun! John makes a startling revelation before he disappears once more. The narrator is the best I've ever heard, and, lucky for me, she voices all five books.
Put some more stars up there--five ain't enough.
