From the Publisher

Critical Acclaim for Sextet

'This is a novel with a split personality, part dizzy romance, part dark whodunnit, a magical mystery tour of the hearts and minds of a very mixed bunch of people as their paths criss-cross from London to New York via Oxfordshire and Yorkshire ... Beauman spins heaps of seductive, dreamlike magic to weave the strands into a pacy, racy, mystical story where no conclusion is foregone.' - The Times

'A thriller which knocks you for six ... [A] peach of a novel ... The artful Sally Beauman plays extremely clever games with the staples of popular fiction, moving the pieces to make original and intriguing patterns ... Sextet is a hugely entertaining read, seriously romantic and with a terrific sense of -atmosphere. Sally Beauman's control of her complex material is absolute. She is an excellent craftswoman.' Kate Saunders' - Daily Express

'Beauman's better than ever in this sexy, yet romantic thriller ... A thoroughly entertaining romantic thriller that mixes a believable, touching love story and genuine thrills in equal measure ... A complex cracker of a plot with vivid characters and atmospheric locations, sexy [and] stylishly written Miss Beauman carries it all off with great panache.' - Good Housekeeping

'An accomplished thriller [with a] chilling conclusion.' - Woman & Home

Just to let everyone know before they buy this thinking it's a new novel. "Sextet" is the British edition of "Deception & Desire". So save some money and order that one. Enjoy, it's a great read!

By A Customer on April 27, 2004
Format: Mass Market Paperback Verified Purchase
I have been on the edge of my seat with all of Sally Beauman's books, but sadly, this one fell far short of my expectations. I had eagerly read the first two books in this series, and had expected this one to be just as good. Sadly, it was, for lack of a better word, dull. The 'loose ends' to be wrapped up just didn't 'work' for me, and I nearly put the novel down three or four times. Unfortunately, finishing it didn't make it any better.
Sally Beauman's other books are remarkable with hard-to-discover twists and turns. This book is simply not of the same quality.
