|Plot Summary of Caravan to Vaccares|
Cecile and Bowman, at a resort in Southern France decide to investigate the extremely suspicious group of gypsies who have been dying during their annual pilgrimage from behind the Iron Curtain to Western Europe. Eavesdropping, Bowman discovers that a man named Gaiuse Strome is financing the gypsies, and his suspicions as to who Strome could be center on Le Grand Duc Charles, a highly wealthy aristocratic Duke whose girlfriend is Lila, a friend of Cecile. As they follow the caravan, Bowman and Cecile put their lives in danger many times in order to rescue the hapless young women who are beaten by the gypsies and to find out exactly what they are up to.
