Book description
Writer Gus Maltravers and actress girlfriend Tess Davy are in Cornwall as Tess is performing at a local theater, built in the 40s with the hope of establishing a successful artists' community. Most of the founders are still in residence; the original founder disappeared years before, an assumed drowning-suicide. Now another has died, Martha, a sculptor, is crushed beneath the stone she was working on - police assume it was an accident. Gus is told it may be murder, and he begins to search for more history of the remaining artists' history. Martha's recent religious conversion and need for confession appears to have concerned her community.
