Overview


The night was dark and stormy…

And when Niall Maguire stepped out of the mist—his raincoat flapping in the wind—it was all Kate could do not to flee. But she'd come to the village of Cragg's Head, Ireland, to uncover the truth about her friend's death. And that meant questioning Niall, the woman's dark, mysterious husband. The man everyone believed had pushed his wife over the cliff.

Niall took Kate to his home, a deserted castle high on the rugged coastline. As the ocean crashed wildly below, Kate longed for her light-filled California home. But Niall's story—and the secret he was determined to keep—fascinated her. The question now was, could she trust him? The cynic within—and the townsfolk—told her no.

But her heart told her yes….

    enthralling contemporary romantic gothic

    California writer Kate Neeson visits Cragg¿s Head, Ireland to do an article on deceased folksinger Moruadh. Though they never met, Kate considered Moruadh a friend as they talked several times by phone before the singer fell off a cliff. Kate needs this article as she has paid her own way to come here and hopes a Moruadh piece will result in a permanent staff position on Modern World magazine. <P>After just a few interviews, Kate realizes that most of the locals believe that Moruadh¿s husband, photographer Niall Maguire, killed her rather than a suicide or an accident having occurred. Kate questions Niall about his relationship with his departed spouse, but he obviously hides a dark secret from her. When another villager is found dead, circumstantial evidence points towards Niall as the culprit. Only Kate believes he is innocent, but she wonders if she sees him through Irish rose glasses. <P>Fans of contemporary romantic gothic novels will be enthralled by Janice Macdonald¿s charming THE MAN OF THE CLIFF. The story line is pleasant as all the gothic elements from the castle to the foggy atmosphere to the brooding male that the heroine loves are there to spice up the suspense. Kate is a fine character though some of her decisions seem inane as she places herself in danger. Still the story line and Niall prove that a writer of Ms. Macdonald¿s caliber can take the gothic out of the historical setting and successfully place it in an entertaining modern day plot. <P>Harriet Klausner
