Gothic Gaye by Victor J. Banis

Gothic GayeGothic Gaye by Victor J. Banis
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

The first book in this series really took itself too seriously, and now I feel the series may be swinging to the other side and not taking itself seriously enough. Still, we're in no immediate danger in this, the fifth volume of The Man From C.A.M.P.

Super agent Jackie decides to settle down and give up the spy life with the perfect man, Baron Max, at the lush and mysterious Castle Gaye.

The book plays out like a Scooby Doo mystery but with enough light-hearted fun to carry you through to the end. Censorship laws were getting more relaxed in this period and the books themselves are letting more and more of their hair down as the 1960`s progress.

Not the strongest entry in the canon, but a fun romp and it`s nice to see Jackie reunited with the agents from the previous books. The series of misunderstandings in the bedroom is worth the price of admission alone.
