Lucy was thirty-eight, plump and disorganized. And her mother kept nagging her. "If I hadn't gone away," her mother said, "none of this would have happened. I've never heard of anything like it. You can't marry a man you've known only five minutes. You can't." "Yes, I can," Lucy said. "And it's not five minutes." But her mind asked, "How can he love me? A man like Roland?" They'd met at the Marleigh Festival and, different though they seemed to be, they knew they would continue to meet. Roland drove a Jaguar and lived in a beautiful old house called Nine Maidens. His father had been sixty when he had been born and no-one had wanted to discuss him. Gradually, Lucy learned that he was said to have been a powerful witch and Roland's strange sister appeared. It might all have been too much for Lucy to handle, but then Inspector Henry Beaumont came into the picture

The suburban area of Bankhill is a seemingly quiet, affluent area. But when Detective Chief Inspector Hunter is drawn into the secrecy and deception surrounding the prominent Mannering family, his preconceptions are sorely challenged. Floy Mannering is a wealthy and charming survivor of a forgotten age. In her perfect Jacobean house, Fairmead, she is temporarily cared for by Daisy, the daughter of her best friend. But Daisy's devotion to Floy and the need to protect her from the claims of the appalling Skinner family lead to desperate measures. A shocking murder sparks more manipulation, suspicion and danger in Bankhill, and in his persistent search for the perpetrator, DCI Hunter finds himself grudgingly sorting through his developing allegiances. Has he been deceived himself, his vision blurred by his personal involvement? Only time will tell - but time is one luxury he does not have
