A dark, haunting, multi-layered story of detection and suspense from the acclaimed author of Koko, The Talisman and Mr X. First published in 1990 and now reissued in a new cover style. On the tiny Caribbean island of Mill Walk, the rich play tennis, polo and golf, trying to ignore the distasteful realities of life. So when Tom Pasmore, the grandson of a powerful establishment figure, develops a passion for detective work -- particularly murder cases -- his reputation undergoes a subtle darkening. One murder in particular fascinates Tom -- the 1925 killing of Jeanine Thielman at Eagle Lake, a resort patronized only by the cream of the island's upper crust community. But when he starts investigating the case, Tom arouses much more than mere disapproval. On the edge of a web of corruption, deceit and violence, he is in danger of uncovering the darkest secrets of the people who own and run Mill Walk.

Near Fine in J Near Fine jacket. 1st/1st UK Edition, SIGNED. Flat signed by the author. This book is square, solid, unread and appears nearly as good as new with just some light shelf wear and the faintest toning to the edges of the text block. Its unclipped, Brodart protected dust jacket bears a bit of crinkling around its edges, but otherwise appears to be in perfect shape. You'll turn cartwheels of glee when this book gets to you! ! !
