Way back during the Crusades, Richard I presented the Huntingforest family with the tiny Balkan state of Averna but since then the kingdom has been forgotten, until circumstances in Europe suddenly render it extremely strategically important to the British government. They hire unconventional detective Albert Campion to recover the long-missing proofs of ownership - the deeds, a crown, and a receipt - which are apparently hidden in the village of Pontisbright.

On arriving in Pontisbright, Campion and his friends meet the eccentric, young, flame-haired Amanda Fitton and her family who claim to be the rightful heirs to Averna and join in the hunt. Unfortunately, criminal financier Brett Savanake is also interested in finding the evidence for his own ends.

    " I kept remembering the BBC version of this tale so there were no surprises. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Azar | 2/14/2014

    " My absolute favorite Campion book thus far. Not only does it have all the elements that made Look to the Lady a favorite, but it also introduces Amanda Fitton, the woman who will eventually win Albert's heart, and you could not find a more perfect match for him--brilliant, stubborn, spirited, long-lost royalty, and best of all, a redhead! *g* "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kestrell | 1/29/2014

    " One of my favorites in the Campion series: a mystery, a touch of the gothic, and a gee girl makes for an awesome combination. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Karen | 1/21/2014

    " Very entertaining. The author has a talent for clearly drawing her characters and building suspense. Agatha Christie fans should enjoy this one. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 John | 1/14/2014

    " Detective story watched on TV (PBS) 1990, grade A+. Campion. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Dean | 12/26/2013

    " The perfect expression of the completely loopy plot that typifies the early Campion books. Great fun. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Eddy Allen | 12/10/2013

    " What was Albert Campion up to in the Hotel Beauregard, Mentone? Posing as the king of a tinpot Balkan state looking for his lost crown. It was all too intriguing for Guffy Randall, so he joined in the treasure hunt ... to the bitter end. Even when it got very nasty indeed. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Karlyne Landrum | 12/8/2013

    " I'm bumping this up to a 5 star read, because I adore Amanda. And that's that! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mairi | 12/3/2013

    " Fantastic! Got more Lugg (he's fast becoming my favorite character) and was introduced to the energetic, hands-dirty, strong-willed Amanda. So hoping she makes appearances in the later books. (And no, I'm not looking to see whether she does or not.) "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tessa | 11/7/2013

    " Another good yarn first appearance of the enchanting Amanda. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Amberjean | 11/4/2013

    " Campion, always entertaining. No Big Thoughts here, just some overly British hijinks. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Babete | 7/14/2013

    " ( Crime Na Alta Roda ) "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kirsty Darbyshire | 6/9/2013

    " I used to like Campion a lot, these days I find these books a bit tedious. No real mystery to get stuck into in this one, just a load of capers with very little motivation. Some nice scenes and tricks but as a whole it just didn't add up to anything interesting. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Teresa | 5/10/2013

    " Not my favorite so far, but I did enjoy the introduction of Amanda. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lisa | 4/16/2013

    " Fun read! Old writing/speaking style, so you have to pay close attention. Very funny, though! Lots of twists and turns. Everything from a treasure hunt to cops and robbers to human sacrifice! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Cece | 9/13/2012

    " Listening to this as I garden-great fun. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Stephanie | 8/29/2012

    " This is more of an adventure than it was a mystery. It was still very entertaining. I enjoyed "meeting" the character of Amanda Fitton since I found her charming and witty and a good match for Campion. The supernatural aspect seemed al oat tacked on to make the book longer but wasn't too intrusive. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Polly | 8/10/2012

    " One of my very favorite Campion mysteries, which is saying quite a lot. "
