Title clues test your verbal skills

Instead of a review today, I’m going to give you chance to test your deductive powers with a quiz based on titles of bestselling vintage novels from 1900 to 1969.

I’ll give you a clue that includes a book title. You respond with the title of a different bestselling novel.

For example, if I said, “This might have been left in The Bishop’s Carriage,” you might say The Bishop’s Mantle.

Here you go:

  1. The Prince of Foxes  is their den leader.
  2. Simon The Jester  would have felt right at home here.
  3. The Weavers need this for their work.
  4. Encouraging words for someone at  The Point of No Return.
  5. There’s nothing for The Listener to do here.
  6. The Daughter of Anderson CrowRosemary’s Baby, and B. F.’s Daughter are all members of this group.
  7. Whatever The Breakfast of Champions is, it isn’t this.
  8. The Gambler might have been willing to risk it.
  9. The Judgment House sees both of these.
  10. It will be first thing Tomorrow Morning
  11. The Pretenders earn a living here.
  12. When The Rains Came, this died down.

If you get stuck, you can look through the site pages listing the bestselling novels from 1900 to 1969.

I’ll post my answers on December 27.
