Title: The Numbered Account
Description: Toronto, Clarke Irwin. 1960, 1st.Can Ed.. Hard Cover. Julia Probyn gets involved in an intriguing suspense story, set in Switzerland, about the fortune left by a Greek shippinng magnate. Vintage Pbk. Ann Bridge has written a number of novels set in interesting locations, which she knew well as the wife of a diplomat and which she describes well. Although the social ambiance of her early works (1930's) may reflect the attitudes of that time, those set in later periods display characters with an appalling assumption of social superiority and of patronising condescension that seems totally inappropriate in the modern world, and which make the stories seem rather too dated in style. Very Good/Very Good, Price Clipped.
