Publisher's Summary

Elizabeth Peters has attracted a huge following of listeners with her ability to deliver snappy stories, witty dialogue, and appealing characters. In Naked Once More, Peters creates a heroine you won't soon forget, the flamboyant Jacqueline Kirby, popular author and outspoken ex-librarian. A lovely, but reclusive, young writer has mysteriously died, leaving the public hungry for a sequel to her enigmatic, best-selling novel. After intense competition, Jacqueline is chosen to write the sequel. But as Jacqueline begins her manuscript, she receives ominous signs that she may be heading for the same fate. Neither chocolate nor scotch can dispel her fears. Soon she is desperately trying to untangle two perilous plots: one in the sequel, and one in her own idiosyncratic life.
Naked Once More is Elizabeth Peters at her best, especially when narrated by her favorite actor, Barbara Rosenblat. Between the two of them, they'll keep your ears ringing with suspense and humor.

Most Helpful

Not Amelia Peabody... but very funny nonetheless!

I love Elizabeth Peters. OK, this doesn't reach the intellectual yet campy heights of the Amelia Peabody series, but it's darn funny anyway. Forget who wrote the book, forget that she's much smarter than the characters in this book, and I guarantee you'll love it for what it is.

More musings than mysteries

Jacqueline Kirby, who is unconvincingly protrayed as charming and seductive, is, at least, quite witty. This particular work is a cut above true romance novels, if that is what you are looking for (I was not), but just barely. It is clear that Peters attempts to legitimize her talents with the aid of a theasurasus as her constant companion. I can't at all fault the storyline, but I can say that there are more musings here than mysteries.
