Abstract:

Provence is the setting of this Alistair MacLean thriller Provence at the time of the annual pilgrimage to Saintes-Maries of gypsies from all over Europe, even from behind the Iron Curtain. The Duc de Croytor, distinguished folklorist and gastronome, is there of course. So is Englishman Neil Bowman, for no apparent cause. But something is different about this years pilgrimage. A small group of gypsies has something they are determined to hide, and Bowman soon learns that curiosity is highly dangerous. Before long he is on the run for his life. Accompained only by dark-haired Cécile, who has become as deeply embroiled as he is, he goes through a variety of disguises and a series of ever-narrower escapes.
