Twenty-year-old Amanda Derrington is on an extended cruise with her uncle when she decides to make a short trip to the sun-washed island of Cyprus. But even before the ship arrives in the port, there is a suspicious death. Once the passengers reach the island, it soon becomes clear that the death was in fact an act of murder. What Amanda had meant to be a pleasant excursion quickly takes a turn for the worse in this classic novel of suspense and romance by one of our most celebrated writers.

"M.M. Kaye outdoes Agatha Christie in palming the ace." --"San Diego Union-Tribune"
"It is good to have these...mysteries back, for they are well-constructed novels about life in colonial settings now long gone, a life Kaye knew at firsthand. The reader can feel the heat and the racial and sexual antagonisms-for they are the real thing, no pastiche." --"The Boston Globe"
"M.M. Kaye has a marvelous touch with atmosphere, place, and time." --"Houston Chronicle"
