Synopsis

"Clara Gamadge is a detective in the honorable tradition of Hercule Poirot....Boylan's writing is crisp and intelligent, her heroine endearing."

Disturbed and baffled, Clara becomes worried about Armand's sister Rachel, and goes to Dublin to warn her. Her dicey transatlantic adventure entangles her in further confusing identities, remembrances of things past, and a killer as stealthy as the Celtic twilight....
