Library Journal Review

Special Agent Aloysius Pendergast has been swept out to sea following the events of Crimson Shore. Proctor, Pendergast's longtime bodyguard, and ward Constance deal with the emotional turmoil of his death, each on their own terms. Constance retreats to her hidden subbasement apartment. Proctor encounters a shadowy figure he immediately recognizes. He is drugged to unconsciousness, but upon waking he sees Constance being dragged into a car and driven away. He follows, embarking on an international pursuit. But all is not what it seems. Constance finds herself being courted in her hideaway-with a poem highlighted in an old book of Italian poetry on the stand in her library, a heretofore unknown orchid in a vase on the floor, and sheet music for a new song on the harpsichord stand. It must be Aloysius! He knows her and this place. He didn't die after all! The only other person it could be, Diogenes, is dead. Constance had killed him herself. But, again, all is not what it seems. Verdict This twisty and bizarre 16th series installment will puzzle and delight fans as well as readers who enjoy locked-room mysteries, international intrigue, shadowy characters with ambiguous moral compasses, and tales that confound and entertain.-Elizabeth Masterson, Mecklenburg Cty.
