The first in a series of witty, erudite suspense mysteries, by the celebrated classic author – with an independent, smart heroine and an ending sure to surprise!
Rita, a small, tough Scottish make-up artist is on Madeira trying to find out who killed Kim-Jim, an American make-up supremo. Also anchored off the island is Dolly, the yacht of Johnson Johnson with whom Rita teams up to get to the bottom of this foul deed.
Rita’s fighting spirits are aroused despite her danger. She is not one for quitting, even when she learns she is caught up in an international drug-smuggling ring.
But she also discovers that dealing with the maddeningly enigmatic Johnson Johnson is, by no stretch of the imagination, plain sailing.
‘Dunnett tempts her fans with buried clues and red herrings that keep them reading and rereading the books’
