- Author Susan Howatch
Another story from Susan Howatch that is set in the wilds of a country, where a group of people are separated from civilisation and one of them is murdered - whodunnit?
Decima is a little paranoid, but ultimately seems like a good person. Charles seems to be quite distant and lofty above the others. Rachel seems a little bit uptight but then falls in love far too easily. You’re wary of Daniel right from the start. Rohan is the normal girl’s best friend.
I like Howatch’s writing, as mentioned previously she’s got a nice modern style that is easy and compelling. Overall, it was very good, but as I read it immediately after a previous Howatch book, I probably didn’t enjoy it as much as I could have.
