The Lethal Stuff of Legends For Jessica Tregarth, an unexpected invitation to visit her grandfather in England is a wonderful surprise—an opportunity to open doors to a family past that have always been closed to her. But sinister acts greet her arrival. A stranger tries to steal her luggage and later accosts her in Salisbury Cathedral. Mysterious villains pursue her through Cornwall, their motive and intentions unknown. Jessica's only clue is an antique heirloom she possesses, an ancient ring that bears the Tregarth family crest. And her only ally is handsome gothic novelist David Randall—her self-proclaimed protector—who appears from seemingly out of nowhere to help her in her desperate—attempt to solve a five hundred-year-old, puzzle. For something from out of the cloudy mists of Arthurian lore has come back to plague a frightened American abroad. And a remarkable truth about a fabled king and a medieval treasure could ultimately make Jess Tregarth very rich...or very dead.

3.5 Light and funny
A rather mad-cap send up of the classic gothic romance by Elizabeth Peters, made even more amusing by the fact that Elizabeth Peters actually wrote classic gothic romance under the pen name Barbara Michaels. At times it veered into farce, but was still more enjoyable than not. This is a very light...

2.0 The Camelot Caper
A mad dash romp along the English country side from Salisbury, to Glastonbury, to Bath and finishing on the Cornish coast. It's a light read and almost a parody of all the romantic, damsel in distress, bodice ripper romance novels. Jessica Tregarth came to England to return a ring to a grand father ...

This is the first book I read by Elizabeth Peters. I read it back in the early 1970's, soon after it was published. I fell in love with the author and her humorous mysteries. I reread the book in 2000 and enjoyed just as much the second time.

This is a nice, light, easy read with some humor. Not Arthurian, but some of the characters are very interested in King Arthur and the archaeology of 5th century artifacts. The characters visit quite a few "Arthurian" sites like Cadbury, Glastonbury, and Cornwall.I also read this book, because one o...
