Two complete novels (The Royal Box and Jamaica Inn) and excerpts from other works that were popular in the early 1950's. Jamaica Inn (my rating *****) by Daphne du Maurier, originally published in 1936, remains one of the better novels I have read and I have read a few. Descriptions are superb. The Royal Box (****) by K.P. Keyes, a page turner, reminds me a lot of Agatha Christie in its style and form. Other works in this publication are excerpts of the original works. ( )
