From the back cover - "When Charity Selbourne arrived in the picturesque French resort town of Avignon, she had no way of knowing that she was to become the principal player in the last act of a strange and brutal tragedy. Most of it had already been played. There had been love-and lust-and revenge and fear and murder. And now the killer, with blood enough on his hands, was waiting in the wings."
This reader believes that this is classic Mary Stewart action, in which her readers become irresistibly involved with admirable characters suddenly caught up in intricate webs of danger and deceit. As always, her settings are so spectacular and described in such detail that I can see, smell and touch as clearly as if I were there as well. It is because of this superb sense of detail that a half dozen reads may not even be enough.
It is about a boy & his dog, a father & his quest for his son & a painting for which people have killed.
Woman's Hour on BBC radio was serializing Madam, Will You Talk? when I was packing to emigrate to America & I bought a copy to take with me because I had to know how it turned out.
Mary Stewart's adventure books about young women tossed into dangerous adventures are always well written, well researched & give you a taste of the countries in which they are set.
