Publisher's Summary

Jessica Tregarth goes to England to visit her grandfather; an invitation that surprises and pleases her. The only link she has with her dead father's family is an antique ring he brought with him to America. This will be a chance to learn more about who she is; it will be fun.

She's barely off the boat before the chase begins and Jess finds herself playing a deadly game of cat-and-mouse through Cornwall, helped by David Randall, the ingenious author of a series of paperback gothic novels. But even Randall's cleverness may not be enough: the couple doesn't know what the pursuers want...and it is not the obvious.

    "Not Amelia. . . ."

    Having listened to all the Amelia Peabody mysteries (or at least the ones with a tolerable narrator), I turned to this book to get my Elizabeth Peters fix. The narration was pleasant, but the plot and characters left me unsatisfied. The heroine was such an idiot and her male savior came up with all the good ideas. I cared for her so little that I almost hoped that she wouldn't survive her delimas! I did suffer through the whole book, so I suppose it must have been decent, but I warn you not to expect very much if you buy this book.

    A 50-something who loves sci-fi, cozy mysteries, thrillers, an occasional romance, and any genre if it is a good story. And especially if it makes me laugh! No vampires or zombies though - these are NOT sci-fi!

    "Bring your sense of humor!"

    It seems as though Ms Peters put her tongue firmly in cheek before she started writing this book, and I certainly found myself giggling in many places! This is an early book by this author, and doesn't have the character and plot development that I've seen in her later works. It is still a lot of fun!

    "...same writer?"
    What disappointed you about The Camelot Caper?

    This book didn't seem to be written by the person who wrote the Amelia Peabody series or the Copenhagen Connection. The story lacked substance from the beginning and I'm having a difficult time plowing through it. I keep thinking it will get better but it hasn't, the narrator doesn't help.


    What could Elizabeth Peters have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Flitting around the English countryside in an expensive car and exclaiming about lambshopping in green meadows and a ray of sun breaking through a cloudy day, REALLY! The characters and their surroundings needed to be developed, they were very "sketchy". The English towns and countryside offer much in the way of creative description, The different characters and settings in this book were unimaginative.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Her reading was monotonous.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from The Camelot Caper?

    All the scenes need reworked.


    Any additional comments?

    This book did inspire me to write a poor review!
