A storm. A disappearance. A race against time . . . Mustique is in a state of breathless calm as tropical storm Cristobal edges towards it across the Atlantic. Most villa owners have escaped the island but a few young socialites remain, unwilling to let summer's partying end. American heiress Amanda Fortini is one such thrill-seeker - until she heads out for a morning swim and doesn't return. Detective Sergeant Solomon Nile is just 28 years old and the island's only fully trained police officer. He quickly realises he needs to contact Lord and Lady Blake, who bought the island decades ago and have invested time, money and love creating a paradise. Jasper is in St Lucia designing a new village of luxury villas but Lady Veronica (Vee to her friends) catches a plane immediately. Her beloved god-daughter, Lily, is on the island and this disappearance has alarming echoes of what happened to Lily's mother many years ago. Lady Vee would never desert a friend in need, and she can keep a cool head in a crisis. When Amanda's body is found, a murder investigation begins. Nile knows the killer must be an islander because flights and ferry crossings have stopped due to the storm warning, but the local community isn't co-operating. And then the storm hits, and someone else disappears . . .

  1. Viljan är god...
    Anne, 30 april 2022

    Läste Anne Glenconners "Lady in Waiting" och blev förtjust och fascinerad. Blev betydligt mindre förtjust i hennes deckare, där miljöskildringarna inte uppväger för de stilistiska bristerna. Språket är förvånansvärt platt och personskildringarna endimensionella och klichéartade. Jag stör mig också lite på greppet, som tyvärr förekommer även hos andra författare, att det som ska föreställa fiktion ligger för nära författarens eget liv.

    Det blir liksom vare sig det ena eller det andra... Läs hela recensionen

  2. Spänning med hög mysfaktor
    Boktagen (Malmö), 14 september 2021

    Jag älskar miljöerna och känslan i tv-serien "Mord i paradiset" (Death in Paradise). På liknande sätt blir här den karibiska ön Mustique och mixen av dess öbor & jetset en mysig och karaktärsfull kuliss för mordintrigen. Författarinnans egen relation till ön ger extra krydda, med insyn i det till synes flärdfulla jetset-livet m.m. Jag sugs snabbt in i handlingen även om den går i semesterlunk. Om lady Vee Blake och Solomon Nile löser mord igen kommer jag definitivt att vilja följa dem!

Övrig information

Lady Glenconner was born Lady Anne Coke in 1932, the eldest daughter of the 5th Earl of Leicester, and growing up in their ancestral estate at Holkham Hall in Norfolk. A Maid of Honour at the Queen's Coronation, she married Lord Glenconner in 1956. They had 5 children together of whom 3 survive. In 1958 she and her husband began to transform the island of Mustique into a paradise for the rich and famous. They granted a plot of land to Princess Margaret who built her favourite home there. She was appointed Lady in Waiting to Princess Margaret in 1971 and kept this role - accompanying her on many state occasions and foreign tours - until her death in 2002. Lord Glenconner died in 2010, leaving everything in his will to his former employee. She now lives in a farmhouse near Kings Lynn in Norfolk.
