Mystery. Author of "Shadows on the Mirror". The back cover says: "Cunning and evil, poisened by a lifetime of love withheld, Eileen Cartwright has an unrivalled passion for revenge. When the rich, middle-aged widow falls in love with her solicitor, she cold-bloodedly arranges for the murder of his wife. It is a crime that will claim many victoms. Eileen's chosen pawn is Stanislaus Jaskowski, a would-be private eye in dire need of money and manhood. Clumsy, remorseful, Stan is easily caught and quick to confess... but Eileen's guilt will be harder to prove. Helen West and Geoffrey Bailey are the Crown Prosecutor and Detective Superintendent assigned to the case, unlikely allies drawn together by a weary, shared compassion. But as they painstakingly gather their evidence, a wave of stunning violence is building, guided by the evil hand of Eileen Cartwrigth and the blind hand of fate..."
