Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"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

    Visit Cyprus and die

    Short but sprightly. The vivid picture painted of pre -civil war Cyprus is seductive. Not well edited though. You never find out why the person who solves the murders is there in the first place. Is he CIA, MI6, a private detective etc... or there just to be the male lead.
