Beschreibung

A murder mystery featuring Lord Edward Corinth and Verity Browne

When the Nazis seize Austria in March 1938, Verity Browne is one of the first to be deported from Vienna as a well-known anti-Fascist. Before she leaves, she is able to arrange for a young Jew, George Dreiser, to escape to England. But where he expects to find safety, he finds danger and sudden death instead.

Lord Edward Corinth also finds death where he least expects it: in the grounds of Lord Mountbatten's country house. There his nephew Frank stumbles on a corpse. Although the police are satisfied that the man died of natural causes, Edward's niece persuades Edward that all is not as it seems...

In this classic investigation, Verity and Edward find that death comes more often than not to the innocent, and that many lives are left to the mercy of strangers.

Praise for David Roberts:

'A gripping, richly satisfying whodunit with finely observed characters, sparkling with insouciance and stinging menace' Peter James

'A really well-crafted and charming mystery story' Daily Mail

'A perfect example of golden-age mystery traditions with the cobwebs swept away' Guardian

"'A classic murder mystery with as complex a plot as one could hope for and a most engaging pair of amateur sleuths whom I look forward to encountering again in future novels.' (Sweet Poison) Charles Osborne, author of The Life and Crimes of Agatha Christie 'Roberts' use of period detail... gives the tale terrific texture. Recommend this one heartily to history-mystery devotees.' (Sweet Poison) Booklist 'This is a witty and meticulous recreation of the classridden middle England of the 1930s... a perfect example of golden-age mystery traditions with the cobwebs swept away, for the many readers who like their sleuthing elegant and their sex and violence concealed behind the curtains.' (Bones of the Buried) Guardian 'Dangerous Sea is taken from more elegant times than ours, when women retained their mystery and even murder held a certain charm. The plot is both intricate and enthralling, like Poirot on the high seas, and lovingly recorded by an author with a meticulous eye and a huge sense of fun.' Michael Dobbs, author of Winston's War and Never Surrender"
