Overview

"She almost looked as if she slept, except... The trident had pierced through her. And the snow-white gown was turning ever more crimson."

Four years ago, while vacationing at their country estate in Scotland, Jon Stuart watched his wife plummet from the balcony to a horrific death. Although cleared of any involvement, he's endured years of public suspicion--losing friends and his good standing in the community. But this was no accident, and now he's determined to prove it was murder.

Orchestrating a dangerous plan, Jon has gathered the prime suspects at the scene of the crime. The stage is set as past and present collide, old lovers reunite...and a killer plots another perfect crime.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
An exceptionally dexterous mystery-cum-romance assembles a group of mystery writers for a charity Mystery Week Game held in Jon Stuart's Scottish castle. Sabrina Holloway had missed the previous event four years earlier when Jon's beautiful, shrewish wife fell to her death. Deemed an accident, many still suspect murder, and Jon cannot be ruled out. The narrative wanders a bit as it hops between characters' beds and heads, though both perambulations are elements in stirring the suspense. Sabrina continually fends off a randy ex-husband while falling again for the dark mystery man, Jon, who she once loved. Pozzessere (If Looks Could Kill) designs an exceptional setting that includes a crypt, secret passages and a dungeon filled with realistic tableaux of wax figuresall historical murderers, sadists, torturers and the tortured who resemble the lively bickering writers in attendance. A few mysterious diversions lack impact but the final who of this whodunit is delightfully unexpected. (July)

I knew who done it from the very beginning. It was a fun story and I really enjoyed it. I was hoping that I'd be wrong about who did it but it turned out that I wasn't. Still, a good read and fairly exciting. Nice, lite page turner.

Another book that I couldn't put down. I was immediately drawn into this story.

Heather Graham has a way with words, this book was just another one of hers to add to my list of can't put down, the love story and the mystery are captivating. You never know what's going to happen next but you try to guess just because you have to.

I look down at the page of review and see many with few stars. I don't what they wrote and don't care. I enjoy Heather Graham's writing. I believe I've read all of her books. The plots are light and fast-moving. The characters are interesting and relatable. The story keeps my attention and I'm happy. This book I enjoyed more than the others because of the murder mystery party. My fantasy has always been to attend one of these. Instead, I had a Murder She Wrote party in my house. Not the same. This party was creepier with great effects in the basement. People skulking about the house in the middle of the night. Wax figures in the basement. And a pool in the basement. Who could ask for anything more? Heather Graham has had a great influence on my writing. We have different styles but the same love for the strange and creepy.
