I loved the hilarious way Vicky Bliss competes with her boyfriend/collegue in their search to be first to find a fantastic relic. So what if she is beautiful, she's smart enough to make it on brains alone. They both know she is far smarter than he, and when through her superior physical strength and brains she saves both their lives, he is really chagrined. And of course she is instrumental to solving the mystery of where the relic is/what it is. I find Peters' style of writing and cast of characters in the Vicky Bliss series far easier to follow and get/stay interested in, than those in her Amelia Peabody series. I've read another Vicky Bliss story that was equally amusing, but with enough mystery to keep me guessing til the end.

The beginning of Elizabeth Peters Vicky Bliss line of detective fiction is a bit over the top, but nevertheless a fun listen. Good narration and very good characterization. Not particularly deep or complicated. Light hearted fun.
