Overview

In 1925 beautiful, bohemian Diana Pollexfen was celebrating her 30th birthday with a party at a country estate, but the celebrations soured when her husband died, poisoned by a cocktail that had been liberally laced with some of Diana's photographic chemicals. Sixty years later, Diana's grand-niece, Helena, is also turning 30, but with rather less fanfare. An overworked attorney in London, Helena's primary social outlet is an obsessive love affair. By way of distraction, Helena starts looking through her great-aunt's papers and soon develops another obsession: Determining just who did kill George Pollexfen in that lovely, sunlit garden between the wars.

Editorial Reviews

Maureen Corrigan
The secret is out by now that Ironside is the nom de plume of Lady Catherine Manning, the wife of David Manning, Britain's ambassador to the United States. In a way, it's too bad that Ironside has been less successful in preserving the mystery of her identity than her notorious creation Diana. Mystery readers are a naturally suspicious lot, and many may assume that Manning/Ironside is a mere dilettante whose way into publication was eased by her husband's connections. A few minutes spent reading the first pages of this superb mystery will blow that snarky hypothesis to smithereens.

    I have just given up on this book for the second time. This was a dull story about pompass and tiresome people- I did not care who did what to who. I know this is one of those books that mystery lovers like me as suposed to love. I just put it in my "dead book box"
