About this title

Synopsis:

Hired as a bodyguard to faded actress Clarissa Lisle, the recent recipient of numerous death threats, Cordelia Gray accompanies the actress to an island castle, whose owner collects funeral paraphernalia

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
