Description
In her second adventure, after Murder on the Cliffs, young Daphne du Maurier travels to a remote island off the coast of Cornwall to visit the estate of Lord and Lady Trevalyan. Somner House is enchanting amid a lush exotic wilderness only a moment's walk to the sea, but just as looming winter storms begin to envelop the island, the Lord is found murdered while the Lady is found in the arms of a lover. Even Daphne could not have dreamed that she would become ensnared in the vile schemes being hatched within the walls of Somner House—or that a handsome stranger would inspire her to plumb the depths of a great mystery.

"With storms lashing the coast and the dead body of the possibly insane lord of the manor turning up on the beach, we have the perfect setup for a gothic-infused country-house mystery. Daphne, bored with the country-house lifestyle, sets about investigating with the help of some of the other guests. [Joanna] Challis manages to deftly weave together the few known facts of du Maurier's young life, the events and characters from her published works, and a generous dose of traditional mystery elements to create a suspenseful tale that will appeal to fans of other literary-inspired mysteries, such as Stephanie Barron's Jane Austen series."—Booklist
