Nathan Oliver is a great writer, but a horrible man. Adam Dalgleish of Scotland Yard is called in when Oliver is found murdered on an island that is ex­clu­sive­ly reserved for VIPs. Only a handful of people could possibly be the killer.

P.D. James adds psy­cho­log­i­cal insight to a tightly plotted classic mystery. Dalgleish is both a poet and a detective. Both aspects are required to get to the heart of what happened on Combe Island.
