Borrower of the Night by Elizabeth Peters (Book Review)

Peters, Elizabeth. Borrower of the Night. New York: Tom Doherty Associates, 1990, c1973.

Vicky Bliss and several others head to a German castle to try to locate a missing piece of art dating to the Renaissance. There are all the things you would expect in a castle such as suits of armor, secret passages, and ghosts. It wasn't the most captivating mystery. This book could have used a glossary for the German words in the text that were unexplained. I refused to go track down my German dictionary so I hope I was able to figure out what most of them meant by their context. I have a low tolerance for Occultic themes in books, and there was too much of a presence in this one for me. (2 of 5 stars)
