Peters was named Grand Master at the inaugural Anthony Awards in 1986 and Grand Master by the Mystery Writers of America at the Edgar Awards in 1998.

Jean Suttman receives a fellowship to study with a group of students on an expedition to an ancient temple in Rome. Almost from the beginning, the atmosphere becomes frightening and threatening when a fellow student is found murdered. Grace Conlin possesses perfect diction and amazing fluidity, but she concentrates so much on these qualities that the story results in a lovely but one-dimensional reading. The listener loses focus as the characters blend, possessing no individuality or colorful qualities. Conlin, although a gifted speaker, lacks the additional acting skills so appreciated by listeners.
