Review written by L O'conner (Amazon)...
Martha, the heroine of this very entertaining Gothic thriller, works for an advertising agency, who are in Cornwall making a series of commercials for a wonderful new perfume, Avalon. They are also making commercials for Picnic Soup (the cans of soup are self-heating, but they are stuck with a defective batch, the cans explode when warmed). Martha finds herself being stalked by someone who wants something from her, but she doesn't know what. She aslo ends up having to care for a kidnapped baby, and gest involved with a very strange religious order. Interesting characters, lively dialogue, and an exciting story make this book a pleasure to read. The scene where the heroine fends off the villains with cans of exploding soup is hilarious, and there are many other funny scenes. One of the best of joan Aiken's adult novels.
