Review Text

Anne Maybury writes Tintexed Gothic tales (mauve shadows and pillared halls; hyacinth grapes and curtains; all under satin-pink light) which defy all the senses. This is about Juliet Holdroyd who goes to Rome to visit her friend Vanessa Malimbrosa - whisper that one - only she's disappeared and no one in the Terracotta Palace or the Villa Sapphira (her family - her suitor Philip and he's pretty attractive) seem as concerned as Juliet. in fact they discourage her meddlesome, mettlesome pursuits. . . . Just as aromatic and expensive as anything that comes in an Aerosol can since most of it goes up in the air. (Kirkus Reviews)show more
