9780006151845: North from Rome

Bill Lammiter, a young American playwright, has lost his girl and is on the point of leaving Rome. Then Lammiter saves a mysterious Italian girl from a beating and the fat is in the fire.

A kidnapping, a battle in a Renaissance villa, a shrewd gamekeeper, a chance snapshot and a touring preppy contribute to the excitement and suspense of this story, and also prove a testing ground for Lammiter and his sweetheart.
