Caudwell's third suspense novel takes place in the Channel Islands and is narrated, like its predecessors, by Professor Hilary Tamar of Oxford. Investigated here is the mysterious death of a great fortune's administrator. "Besides giving readers a bewitching mystery, the author absorbs them in the legends of . . . all the storied Channel Islands," noted PW.
