Overview

"Clara Gamadge is a detective in the honorable tradition of Hercule Poirot....Boylan's writing is crisp and intelligent, her heroine endearing."
PUBLISHERS WEEKLY
When Clara Gamadge's friend Armand Evers predicts his own death, he's right on target. But Clara wonders if the body is Armand's or his evil look-alike cousin, Boyd. Disturbed and baffled, Clara becomes worried about Armand's sister Rachel, and goes to Dublin to warn her. Her dicey transatlantic adventure entangles her in further confusing identities, remembrances of things past, and a killer as stealthy as the Celtic twilight....

She's a mystery-solving matron from the Miss Marple mold--and nothing gets her Irish up like murder. The third Clara Gamadge whodunit from the author of Murder Observed finds Clara racing to the Emerald Isle to find the killer of her old friend Armand.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
In this subtly compelling good-twin/bad-twin story, Boylan ( Murder Observed ) writes with such credibility that readers will suspect her characters of existence beyond the pages of her book. Widow Clara Gammage is surprised when Armand Evers, one of the twin brothers of Clara's childhood friend Rachael, drops in unexpectedly at a family gathering in Cape Cod. Armand tells a wild story about his father's philandering that casts doubt on Rachael's legitimacy and threatens her claim to the family fortune; he caps his tale with the suggestion that someone is trying to murder him. Clara calls Rachael at her home in Ireland to describe Armand's visit, only to hear her friend say that Armand is sitting next to her. After one twin is murdered while both are in New York City, Clara and her cousin Charles fly to Ireland to trace the mystery and prevent anyone from harming Rachael. The terror that builds as the killer stalks Boylan's appealing cast--all of whom, including Clara's married son and Rachael's poet grandson, are fully realized characters--will engross even the most demanding readers. (Mar.)
Library Journal
By the author of Working Murder and Murder Observed , this is another in the ``Clara Gamadge'' series. The charming amateur detective travels to Ireland after a friend of 40 years ``successfully'' predicts his own murder.
School Library Journal
YA-- Clara Gamadge is a genteel and cerebral detective who tracks down a calculating killer who has drowned her old family friend, Armand Evers. The plot is simple, but fast moving as Clara and her cousin Sadd attempt to sort out mistaken identities, pursue family skeletons, and track the murderer from New York to Ireland. There another murder occurs, and they struggle to protect another vulnerable old friend from a similar fate. For Clara and Sadd, the lovely countryside holds only tense confrontations, confusing relationships, constantly shifting plans, and finally clever subterfuge to bring out the truth in a very murky game of family greed and deceit. A good selection for readers who enjoy crime stories in the Christie mold where justice is swift for evil doers.-- Mary T. Gerrity, Queen Anne School, Upper Marlboro, MD
