What led you to pick up this book?
I enjoy Elizabeth Ferrars books – they are comfy crime typical of the 1960s.

Describe the plot without giving anything away.
A painting which went missing when a car was hijacked in the Scottish Highlands turns up a couple of years later in an auction in S England. It is spotted by a friend of the victim and together they hunt down the villains but might the friend herself be hiding something. You’ll have to read it to see.

What did you think of the characters?
Typical easy going Ferrars style characters.

What did you think about the style?

Hardly an effort to read this sort of fiction and the

What did you like most about the book?

Was there anything you didn't like about the book?
