Scotland Yard detective Joe Sandilands is on leave, wending his way through France to the Riviera. En route, he stops off at a chateau in the Lubéron, where his niece is to join her father as one of the guests of a generous yet enigmatic host.

But arriving at the chateau, they find that a troubling crime has been committed recently. Joe stays on to allay a rising sense of panic and root out the guilty. But despite his vigilance, first a child disappears; then an artist's model is murdered in circumstances that eerily recreate a centuries-old crime of passion.

As Joe delves ever deeper, a tale of horror unfolds that eventually unmasks the blighted soul behind the spate of recent crimes.

Listener Opinions

    " The eighth in the Scotland Yard Detective Joe Sandilands series takes place in France where Joe is once again attemtping to go on holiday. But of course a body - or two - fall in his way. I find I prefer the first few in the series which take place in India; more exotic background and characters. But I'm still taken with Joe! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kirsten | 1/5/2014

    " A few interesting twists kept me reading. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sheri | 12/10/2013

    " Listened to this on audio. Started slowly, but then improved. A who-dunnit in a French chateau among some arty-types. And a policeman thrown in. Ok, but not brilliant. It dragged in places. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mary G. | 11/16/2013

    " Cleverly writes such an enjoyable old fashioned series. This was one of her best. The series started in India and this story takes place in Southern France. Sandilands is a wonderful protaganist. Looking foward to his next adventure. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Madonna | 11/15/2013

    " Enjoyed the relationship between Joe and his niece. Cleverly's mystery is, as always, interesting. Handy to have Joe around. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Cynthia | 10/5/2013

    " I liked the first couple books in this series but this one felt really slow and dithery to me. There was too much description of too many uninteresting things, and I felt my life slipping away as I was reading it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Patricia | 8/20/2013

    " I like Barbara Cleverly and I like Joe Sandilands, WWI returnee to Scorland Yard-ish. The series is now moving ahead again and it is fun. Good twists, and I guessed the who done it, but then wasn't sure... Looking forward to more! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Lewis Weinstein | 7/24/2013

    " An ok but not exceptional story which would have been enhanced if Dorcas had been given a larger role. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Anna | 2/14/2013

    " Good period piece - set in late 1920s in Provence. Good plot. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Karen | 12/15/2012

    " Character driven, wonderful sense of place and of time, and a terrific mystery. And Joe Sandilands--sigh! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Joanne | 12/8/2012

    " I enjoy this series. I'd actually give this a 3.5. I liked the earlier books a bit better - India added an air of mystery that is more interesting than the English/French stuff. And, still a good series. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Debbie | 11/11/2012

    " A series I am very fond of. Joe Sandilands is with New Scotland Yard in the 1920s. He gets involved, in this case, with a murder in an artist's colony in Provence. The motive for the murder seemed a bit forced, but Joe and his niece are good characters. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Angie | 7/20/2012

    " I do love it when I can figure out the mystery slightly before the reveal. Still winding and complex with a slightly smaller mystery also included. I'm sad that Joe had to come back from India, but he is still a stellar detective. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lisa | 5/5/2012

    " A very good Joe Sandilands mystery & I did not guess who did it! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kathleen | 4/5/2012

    " Another series I had lost track of and was glad to find two new entries. I do enjoy Joe Sandilands and this trip into Provence was satisfying. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Donna Herrick | 2/16/2012

    " I really appreciate that Commander Joe Sandilands works so well with others. So often our fictional detectives are loners. One of my favorite characteristics is teamwork. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Sally Smith | 1/21/2012

    " This was an okay mystery. I usually like period mysteries, but somehow the whole thing just didn't come together for me, even though I like the sleuth. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Gina | 6/7/2011

    " Another good book in a mystery series by Cleverly. The setting is the south of France in the 1920s. A British police commander is thrust into a murder case in a mysterious old chateau with a houseful of struggling artists. "
