Britain’s mistress of suspense—without doubt, the closest we’ll see to Agatha Christie in our lifetime—is back in perfect form with this eagerly awaited successor to The Murder Room. With her usual sensitive characterization, exciting and superbly structured plot, and vivid evocation of place, she now brings us a fascinating tale of crimes and misdemeanors off the Cornish coast.
Noted for its bloodstained past of piracy and mayhem, Combe Island is now a peaceful, exclusive resort where high profile visitors can relax, assured of both privacy and security. But now, one distinguished guest—a bestselling novelist—has just been bizarrely murdered. Called in to investigate is the discreet and skilled Commander Adam Dalgliesh—in the midst of a difficult time for him and his depleted team. Dalgliesh is uncertain about his future with Emma Lavenham, the woman he loves. Detective Inspector Kate Miskin has her own emotional problems, and the ambitious Sergeant Francis Benton-Smith is smarting at working under Kate. The case soon turns even more difficult, as just about everyone on the island had reason to want the author dead…including his own daughter. The team has scarcely begun to unravel the complicated motives of the myriad suspects when a second brutal killing occurs. And soon, Dalgliesh will be faced with a danger even more insidious—and as potentially fatal—as murder.
