About this title

Synopsis:

It is at a party that Richard Hendon first hears about the mysterious Paul Clyro and his unexplained disappearance. Clyro had been a scientist, doing secret work on viruses with a colleague named Wolsingham. But Wolsingham had committed suicide by swallowing potassium cyanide and Paul Clyro found the body, walked out of his house and vanished without a trace. Richard follows Clyro's trail - all the way to Madeira, where a man known as Gavin Chilmark is living a comfortable and contented life, free from any breath of suspicion...

About the Author:

One of the most distinguished crime writers of her generation, Elizabeth Ferrars was born in Rangoon and came to Britain at the age of six. She was a pupil at Bedales school between 1918 and 1924, studied journalism at London University and published her first crime novel, Give a Corpse a Bad Name, in 1940, the year that she met her second husband, academic Robert Brown. Highly praised by critics, her brand of intelligent, gripping mysteries beloved by readers, she wrote over seventy novels and was also published (as E. X. Ferrars) in the States, where she was equally popular. Ellery Queen Mystery Magazine described her as as 'the writer who may be the closest of all to Christie in style, plotting and general milieu', and the Washington Post called her 'a consummate professional in clever plotting, characterization and atmosphere'. She was a founding member of the Crime Writer's Association, who, in the early 1980s, gave her a lifetime achievement award.
