Was it someone who loved her too much? My favourite character is Detective Superintendent Fred Porson. Julia is at Glentoran, visiting her cousins the Munros. Philip Jamieson is dispatched from London to investigate. Jamieson, with help from Julia, is able to locate several more transmitters on remote islands. They also keep running into three Russians pretending to be Scandinavians on a trawler that has no legitimate reason to be there.
When you think that Edina was practically running Glentoran single-handed in the first book, I was a bit annoyed to see her so diminished by marriage into a galley slave!
The Dangerous Islands : A Julia Probyn Mystery, Book 4
Julia herself is still a very attractive character. As always in this series, the locations are important. The Numbered Account is set in Switzerland. When her cousin, Colin Munro, hears about her trip, he asks her to look into a little problem of his own. In a way, the locations are the real stars of this series.
Ann Bridge must have been a great observer on her travels as she makes the countries she writes about come alive. Julia is her usual supremely confident self, although her personal vanity takes a hit when she meets her match in John Antrobus. My dilemma is, do I just gulp the whole series down by Christmas or should I try to make them last all summer?
Decisions, decisions! Jenny Silver travels to the Pyrenees in search of her cousin, Gillian. At her hotel in the nearby town of Gavarnie she meets Stephen Masefield, a man she knew at home. Now, after returning to Oxford, finding Jenny gone but encouraged by her father to pursue her, Stephen has followed her to Gavarnie.
Jenny sets out for the convent only to be told when she arrives that Gillian is dead. She takes decisions that would seem to be the province of the Reverend Mother, a gentle, elderly woman who also happens to be blind. The description of Gillian seems to fit but there are worrying discrepancies. She was lucid at times, but never spoke of England where she grew up or mentioned Jenny even though she had asked her to come to visit her at the convent.
He must go through Portugal because the Vatican has an emissary there to talk to him about the fate of a Cardinal imprisoned by the Communists.

In Julia — journalist, amateur sleuth, occasional spy — Bridge has created a heroine that charms and amuses in equal measure. Wife to a diplomat, Bridge draws on her experiences brushing shoulders with royalty and politicians across the globe. Set in the Cold War era, communist plots are set against the backdrop of palaces and beautiful exotic countryside, combining courtship plots with vividly-realized settings and demure social satire.
Setting sail for Morocco — the last place he was seen — and using her occupation as a journalist as a cover, Julia is ready for a fairly lighthearted quest. Book two, The Portuguese Escape , finds Julia acquainting herself with the world of counterespionage. Hetta, a young Hungarian Countess, just released from behind the Iron Curtain, is drawn into a communist plot.

Together the two young women will need all of their strength to unravel the schemes and machinations closing in from all sides. When the account is compromised, and documents of vital interest to the British Secret Service go missing, it is again down to Julia to foil a communist plot. The Dangerous Islands sees Julia and cousin Colin sailing off the west coast of Scotland when they stumble upon a suspicious sky-blue pole, rising from the ground on the desolate island of Erinish Beg.
Colin, who works for the British Secret Service, immediately suspects Russian surveillance. Military Intelligence sends Colonel Jamieson to investigate this find, and together he and Julia must unravel the mystery. But as the Cold War rages, the pair are soon to find out that the antenna-like pole is only the beginning. As the conspiracy grows, so too does their affection for each other, which seems rather likely to complicate matters.
Book five, Emergency in the Pyrenees , takes us to the French mountain range bordering Spain.
