When Robert Escrick, the former chairman of the family firm, decides to disappear because the company is being taken over, he retires early, changes his name and sets off for Cornwall, accompanied by his dog Banjo. His wife won't notice he's gone, and he's had a house built for him in preparation.

Then she is found murdered, and reality starts closing in on the retreat Robert has escaped to ...

About the Author:

Joan Fleming was one of the most original and literate crime writers of her generation. Born in Lancashire and educated at Lausanne University she became the wife of a Harley Street eye surgeon and mother of four, and was already a successful children's author before she turned to crime. She is the author of over thirty novels and won the CWA Gold Dagger in 1962 for When I Grow Rich and again in 1970 for Young Man, I Think You're Dying. The Deeds of Dr Deadcert was made into the 1958 film Rx for Murder.
