|The Camelot Caper|
Date: 1969 — $6.29 — Book
Jessica Tregand is very frightened. There have been people following her, threatening her, and all over a ring which she brought to England with her on her trip to visit her estranged grandfather. She's being pursued, and there's no reason to believe that her pursuers want anything good for her. After somehow hooking up with a Gothic novelist, she has to elude pursuit while simultaneously trying to figure out what is so important about her ring.
As a thriller goes, it's not bad; it keeps you in the dark fairly well. The conclusion is all right, but I was never quite as engaged as such a thing requires - I didn't feel as if I knew anything of what was going on, either. But hey, popcorn - it doesn't need to be substantial.
