Retired publisher Susan Ryeland is running a small hotel on a Greek island with her long-term boyfriend. It should be everything she’s always wanted but is it?
She’s exhausted with the responsibilities of making things work on an island where nothing ever does. And she’s beginning to miss her literary life in London.
Then an English couple come to visit, and the story they tell about a murder that took place on the same day and in the same hotel in which their daughter, Cecily, was married is such a strange one that Susan is fascinated by it.
And when they tell her that Cecily went missing a few short hours after reading the crime novel Susan edited some years previously, Susan knows she must return to London to find out what happened.
The clues to the murder and to Cecily’s disappearance must lie within the pages of this novel.
But what Susan cannot know it that very soon her own life will be in mortal danger…
