The Clue of the Carved Ruby
Paris, London, Rome! Vicki Barr finds it hard to believe her good fortune. Now that she is a transatlantic stewardess for Worldwide Airlines, she can visit the most romantic cities of the world - and where Vicki goes, adventure and mystery surely will follow.
Even before her first New York-to-Paris flight, Vicki becomes involved in an interlocking series of events which leads her right into the arms of a gang of international criminals.
It all starts in New York City when a series of fabulous jewel thefts headline the newspapers. Unwittingly, Vicki and her Swedish roommate Karen foil the thieves' master plan by accepting an envelope containing a picture post card of Grand Central Station and a key to a luggage locker - both meant for someone else. Vicki, of course, cannot resist a mystery, and she traces the key to its source - where a paper bag filled with valuable jewels awaits her.
In Paris and New York, Vicki and Karen can find no escape from the entangling web of intrigue, which involves them with a very handsome but mysterious young man and a much-too-charming socialite couple.
Join Vicki Barr on her first transatlantic-flight into a whole new world of excitement, romance, and spine-tingling adventure.
