Our Curators said...

This is a page turner of simply brilliant quality and the perfect read for anyone wanting to escape to the Caribbean, in mind at least. Glenconner brings such vibrancy and atmosphere to the book: we can smell the ocean, hear the cicadas and taste the vodka martinis in this wonderful portrayal of drama on the private island which in real life was once the holiday spot of Princess Margaret and her famous friends. It’s a fantastic premise that a Lady In Waiting – a woman whose role is to be perceptive, accurate and precise – turns detective à la Miss Marple. Anne Glenconner may have written this, her debut novel, at 87 years of age but it is a truly masterful murder mystery.
