Berkeley Gray Bibliography

EVER met Mrs Norman Conquest ? In Berkeley Gray's new book the reckless Norman at last gets hitched up to Joy Everard, his game little partner in many an earlier adventure. This is the story of their honeymoon—and if you are thinking of a quiet, placid love episode, you couldn't be more wrong. It's a honeymoon all right, but a honeymoon which includes mysterious dead bodies, a grim old house in sinister wooded surroundings, determined attempts on Conquest's life— and Sweet William. Out of a blue sky, the trouble-hunting Gay Desperado runs slap-bang into one of his old enemies, and through various thrill-packed chapters, uncovers one of the most dangerous and evil plots he has ever encountered. This is Berkeley Gray at his highest temperature!
