Format: Mass Market Paperback
Since this book was written in the late 1960's, I guess the heroine was still in the process of becoming the strong female character typical of Peter's work. This book disappointed me and I couldn't stand the passive heroine at times. In fact, once I set the book down in disgust at her behavior, although that may seem like an overreaction to some people. It seemed like she was always submitting to the "hero." Aaargh! However, for those of you that aren't as sensitive about these issues as I am, it's a great, funny tale to curl up in front of the fireplace with. It's also a tie-in with one of Peter's other series, the Vicky Bliss mysteries (which I love), giving some background to the elusive "Sir John's" origins.

Elizabeth Peters shows once again that she is the best in mystery writing. Her characters are compelling and she always makes you laugh. In addition, you will fall in love with her heros and see yourself in her heroines! She also writes under the name Barbara Michaels. (Her real name is Barbara Mertz.) Under any name, she is one of my all time favorite writers!

A wee bit of easy fluff...not up to the usual standard of Elizabeth Peters. A bit dated and I could have stepped throught the holes in the plot, but an escape into the English countryside from the point of view of a romantic American tourist.

Elizabeth Peters' adventure novels are amusing, intelligent, and marvelously successful at spoofing their genre while providing all the pleasures of the real thing. In her recent novels particularly Ms. Peters has taken the classic Mary Stewart-style adventure/romance and turned it into witty, literate pieces of fluff that even a 1990's romantic can wholeheartedly enjoy. No one, on reading the perfectly balanced immodesty (in all senses of the word) of Ms. Peters' latest heroes and heroines, need feel that they are subverting their feminist ideals, or feel obliged to adopt the resolute blinkers needed to enjoy the charming but socially distressing romances of , say, Georgette Heyer (whose unspoken assumptions about class, gender and race would, if met face-on, deeply offend just about any American today).
The Camelot Caper was one of Ms. Peters earlier ventures, and while it is picture-perfect with its spoof it hadn't, in the late 1960's, quite broken through a certain passive cast to the heroine that was once endemic to these sorts of stories. It did, however, introduce a highly amusing, rather attractive villain whose name will evoke whoops of delight from fans of the superb art historian-turned-amateur-detective series most recently embodied in Ms. Peters' Night Train to Memphis. For that alone (though there is also some very funny dialogue), this book is definitely worth a first or a return read.
