Superintendent Adam Dalgliesh had been looking forward to a quiet holiday at his aunt's cottage on Monksmere Head. There would be long walks, tea in front of the fire, hot, buttered toast, and best of all, no corpses. But he had reckoned without the discovery of crime-writer Maurice Seton's body.

Maurice Seton was a famous mystery writer -- but no murder from his imagination could equal the ghastliness of his own death. When his grotesquely mutilated corpse is found in a drifting dinghy, ripples of horror spread among his bizarre neighbours: the cruel and cynical drama critic, the celebrated recluse, the rakish young heir, the terrified woman waiting for her killer in a lonely house... It is up to Superintendent Adam Dalgliesh and his extraordinary aunt to discover the shocking truth about Seton's past -- before the plot takes another murderous turn.From the Back Cover:
"P.D. James scores with understated humor, stately yet unpretentious prose, psychological insights ... plus, above all, fundamental warmth and wisdom in every line she writes." -- Kirkus Reviews
