Borrower of the Night

(A Vicky Bliss Mystery)

by

Elizabeth Peters

~~oOo~~

About the book:

A missing masterwork in wood, the last creation of a master carver who died in the violent tumult of the sixteenth century, may be hidden in a medieval German castle in the town of Rothenburg. The prize has called to Vicky Bliss, drawing her and an arrogant male colleague into the forbidding citadel and its dark secrets. But the treasure hunt soon turns deadly. Here, where the blood of the long forgotten damned stains ancient stones, Vicky must face two equally perilous possibilities. Either a powerful supernatural evil inhabits this place. . .or someone frighteningly real is willing to kill for what Vicky is determined to find

Teaser Sentences:

At the table by the window, looking neither cherubic nor pulchritudinous was the person I had expected to see.

 

I approached, not with trepidation — because who was he, to resent my presence? — but with curiosity.

 

This is my third reading of this series. Luckily my memory is terrible and I’m enjoying it immensely because I have no idea whodunit. If you like treasure hunts, crazy @$$ humor, and mystery, you’ll have as much fun as I am. 🙂

  1. sounds fighteningly delicious! 😀 I have never heard of this book but it sounds like something I would like. Great teasers. 🙂

    • I think its older than dirt, or from the nineties, but she keeps on adding on every now and then. When I see a new book I start from the beginning again.

      OCD, or bad memory, you choose. hehehe
