|Bishop Sleeves are made for fleeing.|
Betsy Vaughn, a beautiful young art expert, was hired by Mr. Dalton's secretary to appraise the valuables in the Dalton Mansion. But when she arrived at the looming house, she felt a dark foreboding she could not explain.
The servants warned her not to get involved in the strange doings of the house. But Betsy grew more and more curious ... until the full meaning of her perilous assignment confronted her in the guise of a woman's hollow laughter — an invitation to death!
I tried to read this book, like I try to read all of the Gothic Romance Paperbacks I find in thrift stores. But it was as difficult to plow through the boring interior as it was easy to be enticed by the thrilling blurb.
Assignment: The contents of Gothic Romance Paperbacks never, ever sustain the mysterious spell of their covers. Explain why this deception makes the trashy little things even more fascinating.
