It began as a game, a treasure hunt in an old German castle. For the beautiful and brilliant Vicky Bliss, it was also a challenge, a chance to bring an arrogant young man down a notch or two. And all things considered, it would have been no contest.

The prize was a centuries-old shrine carved by Tilman Riemenschneider, probably Germany's greatest master of the late Gothic period. The place was the forbidding Schloss Drachenstein, where the stones were stained with ancient blood and the air reeked of evil.

The problem was that someone was targeted, and the game was soon being played in deadly earnest.

Review:

Very highly recommended for any mystery buff....a superbly written 'Vicky Bliss' tale and splendidly performed in this unabridged audiobook edition by the narrative talents of Susan O'Malley. --Reviewer's Bookwatch

A writer so popular the public library needs to keep her books under lock and key. --The Washington Post

An ancient European castle...secret passages...a mystery several hundred years old...and danger make this Elizabeth Peters's best book! --San Francisco Examiner
