When Meg and Isabel were still children, their half-sister, Mildred, married a handsome, charming man whom the girls called Uncle Paul. Paul Hartman turned out to be a bigamist. He had married a wealthy woman and tried to murder her, but fled the scene before verifying that she was actually dead. She recovered and set the police on his track. Paul had moved on to Mildred, intending to repeat his crime, but she had discovered his identity, denounced him to the police, and he was imprisoned for 15 years. Now the three sisters are vacationing near the lonely seaside cottage where Mildred and Paul spent their honeymoon, and Mildred is convinced that Paul is out of prison and is coming after her to exact revenge.

Celia Fremlin was a good and underrated mystery author, and Uncle Paul is one of my favourites of her books. ( )
