Summary

Summary

A Mystery Guild Main Selection

Scotland Yard Superintendent Richard Jury returns—but not before sidekick Melrose Plant finds himself embroiled in a haunting case of murder past and present.

With his good friend Richard Jury on a fool’s errand in Northern Ireland, Melrose Plant tries, in vain, to escape his aunt and his Long Piddleton lethargy by fleeing to Cornwall. There, high on a rocky promontory overlooking the sea, he rents a house—one furnished with tragic memories. But his Cornwallian reveries are tempered by the local waiter, a cab driver and amateur magician. The industrious Johnny Wells seems unflappable, until his own beloved Aunt Chris disappears. Now, Plant is dragged into the disturbing pasts of everyone involved—and a murder mystery that only Richard Jury can solve.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“In her sixteenth Richard Jury mystery, Grimes delays the great man’s appearance until late in the game, but the novel is nonetheless as consuming as its fifteen predecessors…In addition to richly portrayed characters and stunningly described settings, the tangled plot is strewn with a host of genuine clues, as well as red herrings that beguile as effectively as they mislead. Grimes fans will be particularly intrigued as Melrose contemplates his childhood, revealing more about his complex personality than ever before.” Publishers Weekly (starred review)
“Entrancing. Grimes makes her own mark on du Maurier country.” Orlando Sentinel
