About the Author
Elizabeth Peters earned her Ph.D. in Egyptology from the University of Chicago's famed Oriental Institute. 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. In 2003, she received the Lifetime Achievement Award at the Malice Domestic Convention. She lives in a historic farmhouse in western Maryland.
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.

Jacqueline is a different character than Barbara Peters' other two heroines, Vicky Bliss and Amelia Peabody. Kirby is an older woman with grown children and is usually presented from other characters' point of view. It is an interesting take on a series, and one that is enjoyable. However, I find it hard to relate to Jackqueline as much as I do to Vicky or Amelia- she seems more removed.
I recommend this series- give it a try!
