    The best Elizabeth Peters ever and that's saying a lot!, April 8, 2003 Reviewer: georgianlover from Washington DC Elizabeth Peters is one of the best writers around. Her books are consistently funny?her plots are fantastic, the characters are people you want to meet and the settings/background are consistently interesting. Trojan Gold features Vicky Bliss?an art historian who is, to her chagrin, a beautiful buxom blonde (she wants to be respected for her brains, which are formidable, not her beauty). Vicky is a curator at a Munich museum where her boss, Schmidt, is an equally renowned art historian (but one who wants to be respected as a great detective?he's more Santa Claus than Sherlock Holmes). Vicky's sometime lover, "Sir John Smythe," is equally renowned?as a great art thief. The three of them come together in a frantic search to find Schleiman's lost treasure, the gold from Troy. This has been missing since 1945?when it disappeared in the collapse of Berlin. The search leads Vicky, John and Schmidt to an Alpine village (where they encounter several of Europe's and America's foremost art historians?all searching for the same thing). Just a note on historical background: the gold went missing in 1945 and it was relocated in the former U.S.S.R. after its collapse (Trojan Gold was written before 1989). It's hard to say who is the best character?Vicky, John (who really is every woman's fantasy of the perfect lover) or Schmidt. The relationship between the three is great (Schmidt is deeply enamored of "Sir John"?whom he does not know is an art thief) and the dialogue will leave you in stitches. Do not miss out on this one! It's truly great?one of the best books Elizabeth Peters has ever written (and that is saying a lot because she is a fantastic writer!).
