This is like a Nancy Drew book only better. Vesper Holly is a young woman who is in the care of a couple - Brinnie and his wife Mary are friends of her deceased parents. Vesper is headstrong, courageous, daring, fun, exciting, smart and talented.
In this book her guardians are invited to a diamond jubilee and Vesper convinces them to go. So off they go only to run into their old nemisis who has tried to kill them in previous adventures. This time is no different. A kidnapping, traveling with gypsies, a bomb, and many other exciting things happen.
What an excellent book. I learned a little bit while I read this book and I totally enjoyed the read.
Enjoy.

Format: Paperback
"Look out Indiana Jones! Here comes Vesper Holly!"... how completely true in this fantastic book by the author of the Prydain Chronicles. Vesper's back, along with her insufferable guardian Brinnie and his suprisingly strong-willed wife, Aunt Mary. The dear girl has dragged them off again, this time to a diamond jubilee for the Grand Duchess of Drackenberg, where they promptly bump into the notorious Professer Desmond Helvitius. Naturally, Vesper wants to know why Helvitius is visiting Drackenberg, so off she goes, dragging Brinnie around with her like Sherlock Holmes dragged Dr. Watson about the streets of London! Like all of Vesper's stories, adventure is the key. Kidnapping, exploding sausages, and a portrait by Leonardo DaVinci follow, making this a non-stop action adventure! Move over, Indiana Jones! Make way for Vesper Holly!

This is a great book for all ages to read. Creative, original and not to mention funny, this book keot me reading until four in the morning. A girl named Vesper, a courageous, smart and strong girl, goes off to the country of Drackenberg with her aunt and uncle. Her dear aunt is then kidnapped, catapaulting them into a high-racing adventure that ends up with a DaVinci painting and guard dogs snapping at their heels. I could not put this book down. It was exciting, suspensful and funny all at the same time. It was a good change from all the books about courageous boys to find one about a smart, strong girl. This book is a great read for anyone.
