Private detective Cordelia Gray is invited to the sunlit island of Courcy to protect the vainly beautiful actress Clarissa Lisle from veiled threats on her life. Within the rose red walls of a fairy-tale castle, she finds the stage is set for death.

“Richly intricate and literate,” James’ second Cordelia Gray mystery “shows James at the height of her storytelling powers” (San Francisco Chronicle).

Intense mystery including an eccentric with a private jewel box of a theater and a fading actress whose comeback is booby-trapped.

Listener Opinions

    " Cordelia Gray's inherited detective agency is mostly finding stray pets until she is hired as bodyguard to a waning actress on a trip to a private island. It's obvious what's going to happen ... "

    " I really wanted to like this book. I'm a fan of James' Adam Dalgleish series and had high hopes for this one. Unfortunately I didn't like either the protagonist or the murder victim and that makes it impossible for me to give the book more than two stars. "

    " Credo di averlo dimenticato mezz'ora dopo averlo finito. Decisamente lo stile di quest'autrice non mi piace e credo che questa sia stata la mia prima ed ultima esperienza con lei. "

    " This was the first of the Cordelia Gray series I've read by PD James (even though it's the second in the series). I didn't like it nearly as well as Inspector Daglish. "
