A novel by

 
 
In this page-turning novel of unparalleled romantic suspense by master storyteller Dorothy Eden, a woman disappears and her best friend is plunged into mortal danger

Alice Ashton arrives in the middle of a fierce downpour to visit a longtime friend. But when she arrives, there's no sign of Camilla. The cottage's only occupants are a black magpie who quotes Poe and a yellow cat.

And the intruder who just crept out the back door.

With no one to turn to, Alice is forced to rely on her former beau, Felix Dodsworth, who left her for Camilla. Then a man called Dundas Hill arrives. Could the widower and single father be the mysterious D in Camilla's daily calendar? Or is it Dalton Thorpe, with whom Camilla may have eloped? Now Alice is the target, as a cunning killer leads her to her doom.
