THE DARK GREEN CIRCLE

Quite different from anything else he has written, though in tightness of plot it suggests the compactness of The Enchanted Village. Remember Joseph O'Neill's Land Under England (Simon & Schuster) -- the closest prototype, though this is easier reading, and more convincing. Discovery, from the air, of hitherto unknown Roman ruins leads to the gradual realization of the domination of a small English village by a man steeped in Roman tradition, and opposed to any social intercourse which may interfere with his rule. He is eventually blocked by a confirmed bachelor, a diverting archeologist and a disillusioned boy. Good yarn with mystery and adventure appeal.
