Summertime in Provence, 1926, but for Scotland Yard detective Joe Sandilands it's not all 'Dance and Provençal song and sunburnt mirth'. Joe is on leave, driving his way south to the Riviera while dropping off his niece at an ancient château in the Lubéron hills. Her father is spending the season here, one of a group of talented artists who are the guests of a generous but enigmatic host.A troubling crime has been committed days earlier at the château, leaving a clear message that more violence is to come. To allay panic, Joe agrees to stay on and root out the guilty person. But, despite Joe's vigilance, a child goes missing and an artist's beautiful young model is murdered in circumstances eerily recreating a six hundred year old crime of passion. Helped and hindered by a rising star of the French Police Judiciaire, Joe must delve into a horror story from the castle's past before he can tear the mask from the diseased soul responsible for these contemporary crimes.

On his return from India, Commander Joe Sandilands, now adept at the arts of dynamic diplomacy, finds himself up to his neck in a tricky political situation. A war-weary London is reeling from IRA atrocities and Joe is further plagued by the machinations of a spy-ring being run under his nose by a Russian emigree princess. When a war hero is gunned down and the life of an even more popular Englishman threatened, Joe knows he only has days to root out the woman who is behind the killings: Irish? Russian? Or somebody quite other?With the aid of the proposed victim who offers himself as bait, and the services of a woman police constable, Joe discovers that the murderer's motive is not political but much more devious and deranged. And when the mask comes off, the killer's identity shocks even the battle-hardened commander.Praise for Barbara Cleverly:'Clevery's (novel) evokes and in some way surpasses the work of Agatha Christie' Publishers Weekly'The atmosphere of the dying days of the Raj is colourfully captured' Sunday Telegraph'A great blood and guts blockbuster' Guardian'Spectacular and dashing.
