Claudine Longet Mystery, No. 14, 1970

Not a magazine, but a book series that helped to shoot Claudine Longet to the top of the teen girl mystery phase.  Each book - about four per year - showcased the French singer as she toured towns around the world, and the intrigue that enveloped her.  "I never go looking for trouble, trouble seeks me, calls my name and demands my attention."  The series, penned by the equally mysterious Wilhelmina Andrews, who never gave live interviews, was a good seller until Longet's decision to leave the life of fame and take up skiing and a more quiet lifestyle.


  1. Ah, this book was remarkably prescient. Perhaps Claudine should have taken note of the story before taking up a skier- Sorry. I meant before taking up skiing.

    Didn't Wilhelmina Andrews dabble in singing, too?

  2. Wilhelmina was a total recluse, never known to return media calls during certain Christmas musical programs on the telly.
