The Vicky Bliss Series

* At present, there are six books officially in the Vicky Bliss series -- "officially" because the character of John Smythe appears in a book that predates the series, The Camelot Caper. Because he is such an important part of the series, that book is included here as well.

 

The Camelot Caper
The Camelot Caper* - Jess Tregarth travels to England to meet her grandfather, and quickly realizes she is being pursued by mysterious villains for an unknown purpose. As she runs from these criminals [one of whom's name is John :-)] she finds help from the most unlikely sources including a busload of would-be heroes, some modern-day Druids and a handsome author. Will she discover what the villains are after in time to foil their scheme?

 

Borrower of the Night
Borrower of the Night - Vicky Bliss, a history instructor at a small midwestern college, sets off to Germany to discover a priceless religious shrine that's been missing for hundreds of years. Her quest becomes a competition, but among her colleagues and fellow guests at the ancient castle where the shrine is hidden is a murderer, who will allow no one else to claim the prize.

 

Street of the Five Moons
Street of the Five Moons - When a masterful fake of a famous piece of jewelry shows up in a dead man's pocket, along with an address in Rome, Vicky is off to Italy to investigate. While there she encounters forgers, nobility, and a dashing art thief with a healthy sense of self-preservation. Her suspicions of a criminal conspiracy put her life in danger, and test her intelligence and courage.

 

Silhouette in Scarlet
Silhouette in Scarlet - A cryptic note from John Smythe (and the need for an overdue vacation) lead Vicky to Stockholm, where she is quickly surrounded by suspicious characters, with no one she's more suspicious of than John Smythe himself. A possible long-lost relative may be the key to a hidden treasure, if Vicky can live long enough to find it.

 

Trojan Gold
 
Trojan Gold - A bloodstained envelope and a mysterious picture lead Vicky into a search for gold that supposedly disappeared at the end of World War II. This is a search John Smythe can't resist, and a determined killer will do what's necessary to make sure Vicky and John don't succeed.

 

Night Train to Memphis
 

Night Train to Memphis - A cruise on the Nile is the lure for Vicky to help an intelligence agency solve a murder and stop a heist of Egyptian antiquities--and possibly capture Vicky's on-again, off-again art thief lover, John Smythe. But jealousy clouds Vicky's usually astute mind, leaving her distracted while danger lurks...

 

 
The Laughter of Dead Kings
 
The Laughter of Dead Kings Ė The heist of the century has taken place in Egyptís Valley of the Kings and John is a prime suspect. Even Vicky isnít sure that her blue-eyed lover hasnít fallen back into his bad old ways. Pursued by Interpol, the Egyptian police, rival gangs of thieves, and Vickyís inquisitive boss, Anton Z. Schmidt, she and John set off on a wild chase to find the clever culprits and retrieve an extraordinary treasure.
