Overview

A suspense novel from “The Queen of the American Gothics” (The New York Times).
 
The nightmare was one from which I could not waken. I was caught upon a chessboard, a helpless pawn in a game of life and death, and the green rook was hunting me. That tall rook of green-black yew who had it in his power to destroy the king and end the game . . .
 
When Eve North returns to Athmore after three years' separation from her husband, Justin, she finds the great estate—and Justin himself—vastly changed. Eve, too, has changed. She knows now the mistakes she made in the past in her marriage, and she now dares to win back the love of her own husband. Like another Eve, she wanders into the gardens of Athmore unsuspecting. 

Yet she has reason to fear. Justin's brother Marc had once before put her in a compromising position in that place of secrets—the green velvet room. Justin had believed Marc and had never forgiven her. Now Marc waits for her at Athmore. Then she is warned that Justin has made up his mind at last to divorce her in order to marry Alicia Daven—the cool, serene Alicia whose quiet assurance comes from generations at Grovesend, and who has always taunted the American Eve with her tempting of Justin.
 
Admirers of Daphne du Maurier’s Rebecca will love this book’s dark atmosphere, mystery, and romantic suspense.

This story deals with a hurried marriage that leads to Eve running away from it alone. As the story starts, Eve North (an American) has spent years away from her husband (Justin North) and his (their) home in England to live and work in America. When she finally returns on the request of Maggie, Justin's cousin who has come to live in the mansion, she discovers that her husband is planning to marry someone else. Everyone seems suspicious of her when the gardener is murdered, and someone is trying to ruin Justin's work. In the middle of everything is Eve's friendship to the younger, mischievous girlfriend (Dacia) of Justin's brother Marc. Dacia is involved in a hit-and-run -mistakenly taken as Eve-before she has a chance to tell Eve what she knew about the murder. As Justin and Eve rekindle the love they once had, the murderer is still at large and the choice is up to Eve on who to trust. This book is GREAT!!!! I loved every detail and the love-hate relationship of Eve and Justin. You'll find yourself falling for the couple!

This book is exquisite! When I read this book I kept imagining it as a movie that should never end. It is really a good book and I think everyone should know about it!

Thank you for bring them into my life. I think that when someone writes a book that is so great that I read it in one day, and then talk about how everyone else shopuld read this book all week long. Again thank you Phyllis A. Whitney for these wonderful books.
