Description:Very Good. 0892964049 0892964049 From Publishers Weekly This...Very Good. 0892964049 0892964049 From Publishers Weekly This first American publication of a novel, written in 1964, in the series featuring modern police sleuth George Felse proves that Peters, best known for her Brother Cadfael mysteries set in medieval Shrewsbury, was as much a top-notch mystery writer almost 30 years ago as she is today. Only the heavy-handed description in the early pages, of the frustrated love that young schoolmaster Tom Kenyon harbors for the beautiful, remote Welsh teenager Annet Beck, betrays the author's lack of experience. But as soon the girl disappears while strolling on mysterious Hallowmount, a hill said to be the abode of witches over the centuries, and returns five days later unable to account for the time that has passed, Peters holds the reader in thrall. Annet's inscrutability is delicately contrasted with the love that every man in her village has felt for her at one time or another, and the Welsh landscape provides a shadowy atmosphere that informs the novel on every level. Felse, in a class with the best-portrayed British policemen in fiction today, is a fully-dimensioned character who plumbs the experiences of his personal life to understand his case. This is a deeply satisfying murder novel in which the central challenge lies in unraveling the mystery of a young woman's character. Copyright 1991 Reed Business Information, Inc. From AudioFile Ann Beck disappears on the Hallowmount and reappears days later with many questions. Detective George Felse arrives on the scene to investigate a death that may tie into her mysterious wanderings. Peters is the bestselling author of the Brother Cadfael series of medieval whodunits. The lavish English accent of narrator Derek Hutchinson provides a vivid look at the countryside in England where this story takes place. The fiction is composed of copious descriptions related with precision. Character vocalizations are uniquely discernible and assist one in following the plot. As the mystery unfolds, the narration lures one along a trail of betrayal, robbery, and murder. B.J.L. ?
After reading Rainbow's End and becoming completely enamored with Ellis Peters' (aka Edith Pargeter) writing style, I immediately ordered this book from the library. I am often disappointed when reading a second book by an author that I think I am going to love, but I wasn't this time. If anything ...
