Emergency in the Pyrenees

(1965)
(The fifth book in the Julia Probyn series)
A novel by

 
In Julia Probyn's fifth adventure, Julia moves to a remote French mountain village near the Spanish border, while her husband, a British Intelligence agent, is on a secret assignment. As always, adventure comes Julia's way. A sabotage plot is underway, with France's gas reserved being targeted. Julia is six months pregnant as the plot unfolds, and her early labour creates additional suspense. The book is richest in its secondary characters: a Scottish lord & his family living in a nearby town with their optimist and pessimist twins, Bonnecourt, a mountain guide & hunter and the main suspect in the sabotage, and Julia's cousin, Colin Munro. Fans of Julia Probyn's will delight in the thrilling intrigue of Julia's adventure in the Pyrenees.

Ann Bridge (1889-1974), or Lady Mary Dolling (Sanders) O'Malley was born in Hertfordshire. Bridge's novels concern her experiences of the British Foreign Office community in Peking in China, where she lived for two years with her diplomat husband. Her novels combine courtship plots with vividly-realized settings and demure social satire. Bridge went on to write novels around a serious investigation of modern historical developments. In the 1970s Bridge began to write thrillers centred on a female amateur detective, Julia Probyn, as well writing travel books and family memoirs. Her books were praised for their faithful representation of foreign countries which was down to personal experience and thorough research.
