I enjoyed this Golden Age mystery quite a bit. It was not quite as engaging as the first in this series, A House Without a Key, but still had many good points of its own. In this adventure, Charlie is pressed into service (in more ways than one!) to deliver an extremely valuable string of pearls to the mainland. As readers, we meet many characters. Some are crucial to the advancement of the plot and some are not, but all add to the sense of place and are nicely developed. There is a nice twist at the end, but I'll admit to a little impatience in getting there.
