From AudioFile

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.

HASH(0x9e9f4828) out of 5 stars Introducing Jacqueline Kirby Nov. 10 2007
By A. Arey - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
The first Jacqueline Kirby novel, The Seventh Sinner, finds Jacqueline in Rome. She mets seven graduate students all studying various disciplines. At a party, another student bursts in and accuses someone of stealing his treasure. The next day, Jean (one of the students), finds the boy near death. It is up to Jake to find the killer and save Jean.

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!

HASH(0x9e9f487c) out of 5 stars .Good mystery July 9 2013

Format: Kindle Edition
I have read quite a few of Amelia Peabody's Egypt. Jacqueline Kirby is a great character that I will read more about. This story takes place while Ms. Kirby is in Rome on a vacation and doing some work in her field. She meets seven students by accident (literally). They become friends. While searching the city for academic purposes one of the uninvited students is found almost dead.

HASH(0x9e9f4cb4) out of 5 stars Improbable but intriguing March 14 2012
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
This is the first of the Jacqueline Kirby mysteries and introduces us to an intriguing heroine/amateur sleuth amid some rather obnoxious visiting students in Rome. The book was a bit uneven and the ending predictable, if a bit silly and unlikely, but if you are looking for a great beach read, this is a fast page turner with a great setting.

HASH(0x9eacc090) out of 5 stars One of my favorite Jacqueline Kirby stories ... Sept. 4 2013
By C. Myres - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I just love the archaeological/historical/cultural elements in this novel, set in Rome and with references to the ancient, medieval and modern city. It's a real puzzle, the characters are engaging and believable, it has humor as well as dastardly deeds. Very satisfying!
