Jobs puzzle for vintage novel lovers

On this Labor Day weekend, here’s a just-for-fun quiz about jobs.

Each clue contains a reference to one bestselling novel. The answer is the title of another bestseller. The clue or the answer or both contains a job title. For example, if I said, “He might have carried The Black Bag,” you might answer The Doctor or Dr. Zhivago.

  1. He might have commanded The Ship of Fools.
  2. The Rector of Justin might have aspired to this.
  3. This man would like The Shoes of the Fisherman.
  4. He is peddling The Billion Dollar Sure Thing.
  5. The Honorary Consul reports to this person.
  6. These guys at HQ have No Time for Sergeants
  7. Burr, he said.
  8. Oh, Money! Money! is this character’s cry.
  9. They obvious choice for stealthy attack on The Enemy Camp.
  10. He works The Farm.

I will post answers Wednesday.

Have a happy Labor Day.
