I was playing Sunless Citadel with the kids, using 3.5E rather than 3E, and I nearly had a TPK when they busted open the can.

The King's Treasure, The Falcon #4, by Mark Ramsay; Signet/The New American Library, copyright 1982, 1983; March, 1983.
After reading the first three Falcon <link://slug/2006-04-04> books, I did some looking on-line and found the fourth book. It turns out that Mark Ramsay is a pen name for John Maddox Roberts. This volume of the series contains the first chapter of Falcon #5, Greek Fire, but I haven't been able to find any proof that #5 was actually printed.

Apparently there was supposed to be fourth entry in the Falcon series, The King's Treasure, but the fellow who loaned me these three has never been able to find it. (Later: see also <link://slug/2006-04-22>).
Sand of the Arena, A Gladiators of the Empire Novel, by James Duffy; McBooks Press, 2006. Interesting.
The Queene's Cure, An Elizabeth I Mystery, by Karen Harper; Delacorte Press/Random House, Inc., 2002. Strained my suspension of disbelief a bit, always a problem when famous people are main characters in a novel.
