"The Camelot Caper" by Elizabeth Peters is a confusing bumbling amateur chase sprinkled with ineffectively awesome-ized scenic British landmarks. (The description adds nought to my actual disappointed memories of Stonehenge.) American Jessica Tregarth complies with her Cornwall grandfather's dying request, returning an antique ring to the estate, completely run-down because the old man was obsessed with digging up the land, and proving an Arthurian heritage. But menacing pursuit by an obviously fake mustached stranger with family resemblance, possibly Cousin John, and his cold-eyed armed sidekick (later revealed as Freddie), drive her into the arms of gothic thriller author David Randall, who has the imagination to finally deduce the plot, though not the ability to stifle his own laughter, resulting in gunshot wound, capture, and imminent doom. Ordinary folk caught up with others over their head render the realism scary.
