Description

"When Julia undertakes to find her cousin, Colin Munro, last heard of sailing a yacht off the north coast of Africa, the quest seems lighthearted enough. But the search gets her involved with Moorish antique dealers, a Belgian woman archaeologist, Purcell, the enigmatic barkeeper, and American airman, the saurian Mr. St. John, and numerous other characters charming or sinister. Julia's search takes her a cargo-boart to Casablanca, Tangier, Fez and Marrakech. Her 'dumb-blonde' beauty, camouflaging a lively intelligence, gets her through unexpected difficulties and dangers.

The first in a series of eight Julia Probyn novels, The Lighthearted Quest displays a blend of humour and adventure which transports us to exotic places and introduces us to entertaining people, but also throws a good deal of light on the explosive political issues that French Morocco encountered in the 50s.

'Here's an answer for the multitude of readers demanding a good story, adventure, mystery [and] romance' -Kirkus
