Vintage Silver Age Mystery
Scavenger Hunt Category: Chandelier/Candle/Etc.
Date Finished: May 1, 2016
Johnny Liddell is in Paris and is asked to investigate the supposed suicide of an American author. The author’s new book is an expose of a hidden Nazi treasure and an escaped Nazi hiding in Paris under an assumed identity. The police aren’t interested in the case, but an Israeli Nazi hunting organization is, led by a very attractive brunette. The trail leads through some various underground sexual situations, with some dated attitudes to homosexuality. This reads more like a spy novel, though the level of suspense is never very high. Adequate but not very engrossing.
Since I already used Brunette and Revolver, we could go with Cigarette or Hand Holding Weapon, but let’s do Chandelier/Candle/Etc as there are candles or, more likely, a light fixture made to look like candles there in the background.
