Back cover copy

'Today is the one-hundred-and-ninety-ninth anniversary of his birth. Can you guess?' The girl shook her head, blonde locks rippling. 'Non? The Marquis de Sade?' Again she shook her head. 'You do not know him?' 'No. So sorry.' 'Then, my dear, it will be my delightful task to teach you more. Much more. Much, much more.' Fleeing the gathering storm-clouds of war in 1939, a party of British débutantes are shipwrecked on an uncharted tropical island. It seems a completely deserted paradise ... until, one by one, they begin to disappear. So who was the Marquis de Sade? And what deviant secret is his distinguished descendant, the Nobel laureate Dr Louis de Sade, concealing far from the eyes of the world? Does he plan to use his beautiful and not wholly unexpected young guests as accessories? In her ninth Nexus book, Wendy Swanscombe gets right to the bottom of all these darkly delicious mysteries.show more
