Vicki Bliss, that wisecracking art historian and amateur detective, is once again in the middle of an adventure. This time she's searching for the long lost gold of Troy, while matching wits with her nemesis and lover, John Smythe. This is a sexy romp full of modern-day derring-do and deadpan humor. For those who love Kathleen Turner's distinctive whiskey voice, this reading is a winner. Turner simply becomes Bliss, with all her headlong chatter and wry commentary. Turner doesn't differentiate the other characters; instead she changes the rhythm and adds an occasional accent to her husky delivery. The result is a bit over the top, but then so are the book--so it all works. A.C.S. © AudioFile 2000, Portland, Maine [Published: APR/MAY 00]
