Description

Twenty-year-old Amanda Derrington is on an extended cruise with her uncle when she decides to make a short trip to the sun-washed island of Cyprus. But even before the ship arrives in the port, there is a suspicious death. Once the passengers reach the island, it soon becomes clear that the death was in fact an act of murder. What Amanda had meant to be a pleasant excursion quickly takes a turn for the worse in this classic novel of suspense and romance by one of our most celebrated writers.show more

Review quote

"M.M. Kaye outdoes Agatha Christie in palming the ace." --"San Diego Union-Tribune" "It is good to have these...mysteries back, for they are well-constructed novels about life in colonial settings now long gone, a life Kaye knew at firsthand. The reader can feel the heat and the racial and sexual antagonisms-for they are the real thing, no pastiche." --"The Boston Globe" "M.M. Kaye has a marvelous touch with atmosphere, place, and time." --"Houston Chronicle"show more
