A supposedly accidental drowning becomes something more deadly when Inspector Alan Grant finds a bizarre object tangled in the corpse's hair and later identifies the body as actress Christine Clay, a woman whom many people may have wanted dead. Read by Stephen Thorne.

From the Inside Flap:

Beneath the sea cliffs of the south coast, suicides are a sad but common fact of life. Yet even the hardened coastguard knows something is wrong when a beautiful film actress is found lying dead on the beach one bright summer?s morning. Inspector Grant has to take a more professional attitude: death by suicide, however common, has to have a motive -- just like murder?

About the Author:

Josephine Tey began writing full-time after the successful publication of her first novel, The Man in the Queue (1929), which introduced Inspector Grant of Scotland Yard. She died in 1952, leaving her entire estate to the National Trust.
