Not Bad, Although Not One Of The Best

In this third installment of the Anthony Monday series, Miss Eells inadvertently buys an antique oil lamp possessed by an evil spirit. It turns out that the lamp came from the strange tomb of a warlock who died some years earlier. Lighting the lamp has already caused one strange death, so when Anthony and Miss Monday find what seems to be a second victim of the lamp, they drive up to do some poking around in the dead warlock’s hometown.

Not bad, although not one of the best. The one I really want to read is The Dark Secret of Weatherend, which was the only one I owned as a child. I must have got rid of it, although I can’t think why. Of course, it’s now one of the ones I can’t find anywhere.
