From the Jacket Flap: "Seven ordinary people - each of whom has an extraordinary secret to hide - receive anonymous letters from a blackmailer summoning them to a remote ski lodge. On arrival they meet the lodge's two residents: a girl who assigns them their rooms, and a young novelist determined to stay until he finds out what is going on...This chilling mystery is one of the most exciting novels of its kind in years. Frances Keinzley, whose earlier novel won the Literary Award in New Zealand, is more than a talented and intelligent storyteller: she is a subtle psychologist who can put believable characters with vastly different backgrounds into the same set of circumstances and make each behave in his own characteristic way. This talent, along with her inventiveness at building suspense and working our a surprise solution, makes 'A Time to Prey' a mystery of rare excellence."
