Publisher's Summary

Scotland Yard detective Joe Sandilands is on leave, wending his way through France to the Riviera. En route, he stops off at a chateau in the Lubéron, where his niece is to join her father as one of the guests of a generous yet enigmatic host.
But arriving at the chateau, they find that a troubling crime has been committed recently. Joe stays on to allay a rising sense of panic and root out the guilty. But despite his vigilance, first a child disappears; then an artist’s model is murdered in circumstances that eerily recreate a centuries-old crime of passion.
As Joe delves ever deeper, a tale of horror unfolds that eventually unmasks the blighted soul behind the spate of recent crimes.

They just keep getting better!

This is another excellent addition to this wonderful series. The stories are a mystery/adventure series, set in the 1920s, with a former English soldier who served in military intelligence during WWI. They can be best described as a mixture of BullDog Drummond and Hercule Poirot. They are all fantastic'
