Phyllis A. Whitney: Mystery of the Golden Horn

July 1974 is the publication date for Mystery of the Golden Horn by Phyllis A. Whitney. Vicki Stewart was spending the summer in Istanbul and was told by a gypsy that a golden horn was the key to her fortune! She and her friend Adria end up searching all over the city for clues to the mystery!

Allan Kass illustrates the two teenage girls with the shadows of Istanbul behind them as they climb onto a roof of a castle. He shows them being physically active and imaginative. I like their colorful shirts and jeans which is perfect sleuthing clothing!
