An atmospheric and gripping collection of short stories from Lady Antonia Fraser, many of which feature Jemima Shore. Reissued with a new cover for 2014.
From treachery in the Caribbean to mischief in the Mediterranean, from murderous drama to sleek black comedy, from a baffling number of suspects to a single confrontation with a maniacal rapist, here is a tantalising and varied excursion round motives and methods in the realm of crime - a collection of wittily told and deftly turned stories, with a twist.

Fraser is in the business of entertainment. She whistles you through a variety of settings at a cracking pace, and each mini-plot is tailored as neatly as one of Jemima's immaculate suits - Evening Standard
