Review: The Affair of the Chalk Cliffs (The Narbondo Series #5)

User Review  - David Schwan - Goodreads

A solidly written book in the the St. Ives series. The villain uses a "ray" type device to inflict madness on people at a distance. What is disappointing is the protection device used against the "ray." An entertaining short read. Wonderful illustrations. Read full review
