Descrizione

A devilishly complex mystery in a heavenly setting puts Emmy Tibbett in the role of sleuth—from “the author who put the ‘who’ back in whodunit” (Chicago Daily News).

Fans of Emmy Tibbett, have we got the book for you! Vacationing with friends in the Caribbean, Emmy and Henry meet a sprightly and delightful spinster who spins a yarn about a young woman lost at sea and then (perhaps) found again. The yarn gets yet more fascinating when the spinster herself disappears, and Henry—wry, unflappable Henry Tibbett of Scotland Yard—responds in a most uncharacteristic fashion. It’s up to Emmy to untangle the clues, contending with drug smugglers on the one hand and an addled husband on the other. And did we mention the hurricanes? Emmy, of course, has resources to spare, so much so that we wish we could bring her back for a series of her very own.

Praise for Patricia Moyes

“A new queen of crime . . . her name can be mentioned in the same breath as Agatha Christie and Ngaio Marsh.” —Daily Herald

“The author has the authentic Agathian gift for mixing the ordinary and the sinister. Charmingly tea-tabled misdeeds.” —Financial Times

“An excellent detective novel in the best British tradition. Superbly handled.” —Columbus Dispatch

“Intricate plots, ingenious murders, and skillfully drawn, often hilarious, characters distinguish Patricia Moyes’ writing.” —Mystery Scene
