"As a journalist reporting on the young Prince Charles, Heald inevitably found himself caught up in speculation about who the heir to the British throne would eventually marry. Most people supposed that the Prince would marry a true love and
live happily ever after. Heald, perhaps cynically, wondered what would happen if he married "the wrong girl". This novel is based on that premise and though written before the world at large knew about Lady Diana it turned out to be horribly prescient."
"Caroline R has everything needed in a bestseller: a double surprise ending, led up to by a plot of steadily increasing tension; an abundance of human interest; a familiar but disconcerting setting; and a subject in which only the inhabitants of Outer Mongolia are not interested."
