"My best author"
Nick Paleologus is summoned to the unyielding bosom of his family to help resolve a dispute which threatens to set his brothers and sisters against their aged and irascible father. Michael Paleologus, retired archaeologist and supposed descendant of the last Emperors of Byzantium, lives alone at Trennor, a remote and rambling house on the Cornish bank of the Tamar. A ridiculously generous offer has been made for the house, but he refuses to sell despite the urgings of his children, for whom the proceeds would solve a variety of problems.
"A modern writer worth reading"
In 1707, the HMS Association was lost with no survivors. Thirty years later, an admiralty clerk is tasked with a secret mission. And 200 years after that in 1996, a dive results in a fatal accident. Ten years later, an expatriate is called home to identify a woman he only vaguely recognizes. These seemingly disconnected events come together to form a trail of deceit, murder, and greed.
"Great Goddard spoilt by poor reading"
