P. D. James is "the reigning mistress of murder." -- Time Private detective Cordelia Gray is invited to the sunlit island of Courcy to protect the vainly beautiful actress Clarissa Lisle from veiled threats on her life. Within the rose red walls of a fairy-tale castle, she finds the stage is set for death. "Richly intricate and literate," James's second Cordelia Gray mystery "shows James at the height of her story telling powers" (San Francisco Chronicle).

From the Back Cover:

"The reason it takes me so long to write is because it takes a long time for the characters to reveal themselves to me. My ambition as a writer is to make even the minor characters come alive." --P. D. James

"James pulls out all the stops ... an overlay of lust; midnight apparitions; hairbreadth escapes." --New York Magazine

"A masterly version of the clue-and-alibi game ... five star." --The Guardian


 


From the Inside Flap:

Fading star Clarissa Lisle plans a spectacular comeback, to be staged in a gothic castle. But poison-pen letters bearing death threats couched in Shakespearian quotations prompt Clarissa's husband to call in the young private detective Cordelia Gray to investigate.
