About the Author:

Sarah Caudwell is also the author of Thus Was Adonis Murdered, The Shortest Way to Hades, and The Sirens Sang of Murder. She studied law at St. Anne's College, Oxford, was called to the Chancery Bar, and practiced as a barrister for several years in Lincoln's Inn. She then became a member of the legal section of a major London bank, where she found herself specializing in international tax planning. Sarah Caudwell died in January 2000.

Haddon trained at the Central School of Speech and Drama where she won several awards prior to joining the BBC Radio Drama Company.

From Publishers Weekly:

Caudwell's third suspense novel takes place in the Channel Islands and is narrated, like its predecessors, by Professor Hilary Tamar of Oxford. Investigated here is the mysterious death of a great fortune's administrator. "Besides giving readers a bewitching mystery, the author absorbs them in the legends of . . . all the storied Channel Islands," noted PW.
