Cornwall, Fiction, Modern & contemporary fiction (post c 1945)

A truly thrilling murder mystery set partly in Cornwall, in the tradition of Du Maurier's Rebecca: dark, English and very much a classic.

At 21, James Farrell has the world at his feet. A gifted violinist, his successful career seems assured. Until a chance encounter with Ella changes everything.

Ella, bewitching, irresistible, haunted by the ghosts of her family's past - James cannot help falling in love with her and she with him.

But as the power and dangerous fragility of their relationship overwhelm them, James can only watch helplessly as the most beautiful thing in his life is strangled by deception, betrayal and ultimately murder...
