Bill Hamilton tells this story of the time a deadly fog descended on the capital city of Gibraltar, but it's mainly about young Britisher Michael Fairlie who stumbles blindly first into a room with three men hanging dead from the rafters, then into the most beautiful princess he's ever met. Before long there are more bodies, a thicker fog, and a cabal of sadistic Spaniards scouring the slate-grey city for him - and all he can think about is bumping into the princess again. This is one of Norman Berrow's last novels and he pulls out all the stops in presenting an impossible crime in an exotic land. Too bad no one can see anything in the fog! It might make dodging the Spaniards and romancing the princess a bit easier. And yes, there is an evil nun involved.
