Blood Upon The Snow (eBook)
A Mark East Mystery
Sobre o livro
"Miss Lawrence creates horror atmosphere with good skill, the hard way, with a light touch that leaves no brush marks. A few snowflakes, the mere suggestion of sinister sound, the barest hint of screaming silence, and the reader's hackles come away from his collar." —The New York Times Book Review
"Smooth handling by East — and the author." —Kirkus.
Private detective Mark East arrives at Crestwood, an elegant estate, to serve as a private secretary to archaeologist Joseph Stoneman. At least, East issupposed to be a secretary. Mr. Stoneman's nervous manner suggests that he's actually in need of a bodyguard. The estate's other residents—including a troubled hostess who confines herself to her room and a strangely solemn child — contribute to the fearful atmosphere. After a snowstorm completely isolates the estate from outside contact and the occupants start dying under mysterious circumstances, East must identify the murderer before it's too late for the entire household.
