A master at solving mysteries that turn the art world upside down, art expert Vicky Bliss embarks on her most dangerous and intriguing escapade yet.
After a two-week absence, Vicky’s beau, John, shows up at her Munich apartment—the usual way, via window. It seems that someone has dared steal the mummy of King Tutankhamen from its resting place in Egypt’s Valley of the Kings—and “Sir John Smythe,” thief turned antiquities dealer, is the prime suspect.
Even Vicky isn’t sure that John’s not guilty, but there’s just one way to find out. Pursued by rival thieves, Vicky’s inquisitive boss, Schmidt, and Schmidt’s American agent girlfriend, the pair set off on a wild chase to recover the mummy—before the authorities learn it’s gone.

This is the first time I have read Elizabeth Peters, and I have to say I enjoyed it very much. She writes with a lot of humor and sarcasm which I like. The pace is fast with lots of intrigue and mystery, travel and vivid descriptions.
I have read many of Elizabeth Peters' novels, including the stand alone books and I find that Vicky Bliss doesn't hold a candle to Ms. Peabody.
Vicky Bliss is back, 3 book years and 30 in real time. Well worth the wait. John is back, in trouble again, suspected of stealing the mummy of King Tut. Of course Schultz and Vicki are on hand to prove his innocence. And not to spoil the ending but there is a recurring person who die hard readers will just love. Every page is a pleaser.
