But her former acquaintance, Countess Hetta Páloczy, the young Hungarian refugee, unwittingly gets them both involved in the world of Embassies, Military Intelligence, and Cold War intrigue.

But even in the tranquil beauty of Gralheira, peril lurks...

About the Author

Ann Bridge (1889-1974), or Lady Mary Dolling (Sanders) O'Malley was born in Hertfordshire. Bridge's novels concern her experiences of the British Foreign Office community in Peking in China, where she lived for two years with her diplomat husband. Her novels combine courtship plots with vividly-realized settings and demure social satire. Bridge went on to write novels around a serious investigation of modern historical developments. In the 1970s Bridge began to write thrillers centered on a female amateur detective, Julia Probyn, as well writing travel books and family memoirs. Her books were praised for their faithful representation of foreign countries which was down to personal experience and thorough research.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Episode at Toledo 12 April 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I'd read books by this author years ago and forgotten about her. This book is well written,with good characterisation. I enjoyed this story of "dirty doings"in Spain. It's set in the 1950's, so it is obviously dated, but interesting nevertheless.

3.0 out of 5 stars Midsomer Murders and similar 26 Sept. 2013

If you like something harmless with a little bit of gentility and superficial description of places visited by the author, than you will enjoy this. Agatha Christie does it better. Still quite nice read on the beach.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great read 29 Aug. 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I like Ann Bridge novels and I love Portugal, so I am biased. This one is definitely up to her normal standard with believable characters that you really get to know and like. Her descriptions of the particular country she is writing about are graphic and stunning. Yes, they were written some 50 years ago but in my mind that doesn't detract from a really good story.
