Who would want to kill legendary French diva Corinne Coreille?
When death threats arrive in the post, Corinne takes refuge at Chalfont Park, country estate of her godmother Lady Grylls. Other house guests include Antonia Darcy and her husband Major Payne, Corinne's dominating agent Maitre Maginot, a private detective called Jonson, and Lady Grylls' nephew, Peverel de Broke... But why has millionairess socialite Eleanor Merchant travelled from the US with the sole intention of meeting Corinne?
Could it be because she believes it was Corinne's haunting voice that drove her son to suicide?
