Romantic Thrillers

The author's Telegraph obituary summarises these works: Although not strictly formulaic, her thrillers were usually cut from similar cloth. Her heroines — she called them "my young ladies” — were genteel innocents of unusual moral certainty, meeting peril and love with the same resolve. Locations were often exotic. The Gabriel Hounds (1967) was set in Lebanon; The Moonspinners (1962) in the White Mountains of Crete; while Airs Above The Ground (1965) featured a villainous high-wire artist who skulks in Vienna.
