Publisher's Summary

It's an exotic end for an English spinster. En route to a family vacation on the French Riviera, Inspector Roderick Alleyn glimpses from the train a shocking tableau. In a moonlit window, a white-robed figure raises a knife to a woman's shadow. Thus begins his incognito exploration of the Chateau of the Silver Goat... where a jet-set cult's "Way of Life" could spell death for a maiden lady of a certain age, and even for Alleyn's own young son, unless he can unveil its illicit mysteries.


What the Critics Say

Not a who-dunit but lots of fun

Unlike most Ngiao Marshes, you know all along who the criminals are. But the characters are engagingly drawn and the plot suspenseful. The reader has a great sense of the tone of the books and was enjoyable to listen to.

Mixed Feelings

I had mixed feelings about this book. I thoroughly enjoyed the reading of this book--it was excellent--and I enjoyed all the interplay between the Alleyn family and several other people. I'd rate that a 5. I did not particularly like the plot with the whole cult theme, it seemed a little corny. It was still an enjoyable listen.
