Summary

After many years working around the world for an international charity in the late 1960s, Eleanor Trewynn has retired to the relative quiet of a small town in Cornwall. But her quiet life is short-lived when, due to her experience, the Commonwealth Relations Office reaches out to her to assist in a secret conference that is to take place in a small hotel outside the historical village of Tintagel.
Meanwhile, her niece, Detective Sergeant Megan Pencarrow, is investigating the disappearance of a local solicitor when she is assigned to help provide security for the conference. Two African students, refugees from Ian Smith's Rhodesia, arrive for the conference, escorted by Megan's bête noire from Scotland Yard. They are followed by two mysterious and sinister Londoners, whose allegiances and connections to the conference and the missing solicitor are unclear. With a raging storm having trapped everyone in the hotel, the stage is set for murder, and it's up to Eleanor and Megan to uncover the truth before more lives are lost.

Good detective story

It's a good detective story but with some historical inaccuracies. Pound coins didn't exist until 1983, pounds were in notes at that time. There are a few slightly annoying Americanisms that creep in and some mispronunciations bit otherwise weĺl narrated.

Bad pronunciation

Can't you find a narrator who knows how to pronounce words such as executor correctly. Mistakes ruin the flow of the narrative.

We NEED More Cornish Mystery books

Any additional comments?

Enjoyable, and easy, listening! I enjoy the healthy, loving and respectful, relationship between Eleanor and her niece, Meagan.
For others that like to know things like this before purchasing: While there is some cursing in the book, there are no f-bombs.

Very slow

I really enjoyed the first two books in this series. This one moved very slowly. There are endless descriptive narrative of scenarios and interior decor. The climatic chase scene took several chapters as the reader is treated to description of flora and fauna and terrain and fog on the moors. I found my self skipping chapters only to find the story had not moved forward. I like the characters. The mystery in this one was weak, relying scenic prose to carry story.
