Writer David Cleeve lived exactly the way a best-selling novelist should live in an opulent house in a beautiful corner of Cornwall. But beneath the successful façade was a private nightmare. For at regular intervals, a sinister warning was delivered to him: a single playing card, the Jack of Diamonds. Then, one day, the card arrived torn in half and that night, there was a murder. Wycliffe is in the area on holiday, but far from relaxing, he finds himself drawn into the case. Before long, there’s more than just a single mystery to solve. As Wycliffe investigates, he uncovers a double murder, arson, and a series of crimes that stretch back through the years.
