Maurice Seton was a famous mystery writer -- but no murder from his imagination could equal the ghastliness of his own death. When his grotesquely mutilated corpse is found in a drifting dinghy, ripples of horror spread among his bizarre neighbours: the cruel and cynical drama critic, the celebrated recluse, the rakish young heir, the terrified woman waiting for her killer in a lonely house... It is up to Superintendent Adam Dalgliesh and his extraordinary aunt to discover the shocking truth about Seton's past -- before the plot takes another murderous turn.From the Back Cover:
"P.D. James scores with understated humor, stately yet unpretentious prose, psychological insights ... plus, above all, fundamental warmth and wisdom in every line she writes." -- Kirkus Reviews
