Review Text

Turn back to 1934 and the thrill of discovery in Walsh's The Road to Nowhere, recapture of the evasive charm of Donn Byrne, the zest for romantic adventure of Jeffrey Farnol. Here we find it again, after too long a gap (though omnibus volumes between times reintroduced Walsh) in Trouble in the Glen. Some will charge him with romantic attitudes, disarming sentiment in a modern tale of derring-do. Others (this reader among them) will welcome this unflagging zest in spinning a yarn. Gaelic to the core- the scene is a Highland glen - his characters the sturdy, stubborn folk of the glen, pitted against the inflexible rectitude of a not quite sure of himself Laird - his story, that of an almost outsider who does his knightly deed of chivalry, achieves the peace he desired, and wins his lady. For a special but eager audience. (Kirkus Reviews)show more
