Overview

“Jemima works it out in assertive, often witty style. . . . Most enjoyable.” —Houston Chronicle
Back in print—Antonia Fraser's third Jemima Shore mystery, in which the intrepid and glamorous detective confronts sinister doings in a Bloomsbury penthouse. Everyone loved Chloe Fontaine. Tiny and exquisitely pretty, her fragile looks hid a considerable talent as a novelist. She had had a series of admirers, lovers, and husbands ever since her arrival in literary London. Her friends sometimes remarked on the odd contrast of her disorderly private life and the careful formality of her work, yet it hardly seemed to matter when even the critics doted on her. When Chloe strangely and suddenly disappears one hot summer day, Jemima Shore, who is left in charge of her flat, must find out why before it is too late.
