This has more of a mystery element than many of Bridge's novels, which tend to be travelogues with exotic settings and a little adventure. In this one her heroine Julia Probyn is helping the British Secret Service guard a Swiss bank account left by a Greek shipping tycoon from a false heiress. It incidentally includes a defense of the Swiss banks from the charge of their taking advantage of Jewish accounts in World War II, a charge which has now, I believe, been proven. ( )

Book description
Julia Probyn, like most people, knew very little about anonymous numbered accounts in Swiss Banks. Until her cousin, Colin Munro, asked her to look into the matter of one containing a fortune, for his fiancée Aglaia Armitage, left to her by her Greek grandfather. Then Julia learned a great deal.

But besides bonds and debentures, old Mr. Thalassides, proved to have left documents of vital interest to the British Secret Service, and to other Powers as well, in the vault with them. When these disappear, the hunt begins...

Ann Bridge brings her characteristic wit, suspense and sense of adventure to the third book in the Julia Probyn series.
