Overview

When Helen Lovelace dies peacefully at the age of eighty-eight, her affable grandnephew Nicholas Duffield, recently returned from Australia, and his stunning cousin, Kate Galvin, arrived from America for the funeral, stand to share a substantial inheritance. When Kate is murdered in her bed, suspicion naturally falls on Nicholas. Helen's longtime housekeeper and companion refuses to believe that the gracious young man could have committed the crime and implores her neighbor, Virginia Freer, to prevail upon her estranged husband, the exasperating charmer Felix, to prove Nick's innocence. A fanciful con artist, perpetual liar, and petty crook, Felix is fascinated by the puzzle of embittered neighbors, poisoned pet, and purloined emeralds. Virginia apprehensively observes her infuriatingly clever onetime spouse sort out the missing pieces supplied by a local jewelry maker who knows more about the emeralds than he has told the police; by a mentally retarded young man whose selflessly devoted mother harbors a deep-seated animosity toward the murdered woman; and by a successful crime writer with her own reasons for hating the beguiling Kate. When the housekeeper almost becomes a second victim, Felix astutely picks up on an obscure clue and proves what he has suspected all along.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
One of Britain's most dependable and prolific mystery writers dishes up a feast of suspects and red herrings in the latest of more than 60 published novels. Marred only minimally by the hesitancy with which the amateur detective, con man and chronic liar Felix Freer, confronts the plot's complications, the story begins with the death of elderly, well-off Helen Lovelock in the town of Allingford. Survivors are a grandnephew arrived from Australia only a few months earlier, and a grandniece who flies in from America. When the niece is shot in bed soon after the funeral, the deceased's woefully unprovided-for housekeeper calls for help to Virginia Freer, Felix's estranged wife, who is living next door. As the neighbors assemble--they include a disturbed man and his self-sacrificing mother, a teacher and his wife--a safe full of emeralds (which may be fakes) is hastily ransacked. Virginia summons Felix and the chase is on. Ferrars ( Sleep of the Unjust ) establishes multiple layers of deception, drawing on all to fashion her deft solution. (Jan.)
