In a trailer park, far from the kind of environment Cleo has been used to, Aragon finds the body of her closest friend, a counselor at the school. The corpse is surrounded by suicide messages, one of them addressed to Cleo. But he doesn't find Cleo, who remains as elusive and as slippery as a mermaid.
Agatha Christie was a great admirer of Margaret Millar's work becuase "she is always different." She always is. Mermaid is a striking example of her storytelling skill and her never-failing ability to surprise.
