In the novel, dialogue begins simply and progresses in difficulty using everyday vocabulary (with word-lists available in various languages). It is suitable for beginners trying to improve their grasp of the Esperanto language, and a rehearsal of basic grammar and an entertaining story.
The mystery begins when three college students witness the strange disappearance (capture?) of a woman who is an expert in "cryptic languages"...
Published as a book, "Gerda Malaperis!" has since been incorporated into electronic courseware. A movie is available on DVD.
