Everyone would like to know what happened to the cache of gold that Schliemann extruded from his sacking of Troy. Protagonist Vicky Bliss takes us through Germany, the Bavarian Alps, two murders, three male suitors and four museum directors to find the treasure. Barbara Rosenblat gives each of these characters a juicy, recognizable personality. A talented actress with an excellent ear, she renders foreign accents impeccably and also delineates differences within regional dialects. Her male/female conversations are remarkable for their suggestive overtones. One may wish for more feverish pitches at the several climaxes in the story, but the tale itself is secondary to her telling. J.P. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: MAR 93]
