Borrower of the Night is the first Vicky Bliss mystery and is slightly dated by 1970s references and attitudes. (The story was first published in 1973.) Vicky is also not Peters' most sympathetic heroine, but perhaps that's intentional. The setting and history was interesting; the plot good. A readable 'first' in the series and I'm convinced enough to try the second.
