Publisher's Summary

Renowned criminologist, psychoanalyst and sardonic widow Mrs Bradley is enjoying a relaxing holiday on the beautiful island of Hombres Muertos.

Then a cave high up in the mountains, containing the mummified bodies of 23 dead kings, acquires an extra corpse overnight, and Mrs Bradley is delighted to be called into action. As her investigations begin it quickly becomes clear that almost everyone on the island has a motive for murder, and a dark secret they are desperate to conceal. But who is the real killer?
