will Annet betray her lover who murdered or maintain 5 lost days

Fairly good book. Of course, the time frame is very out dated but it is interesting the way the characters are developed. It had me guessing who really was the murderer. ( )

I liked it. Ellis Peters seemed to be fantasizing a bit about what it's like to have looks that have all the men falling in love with you. Annet doesn't fit any pretty girl stereotype. ( )

A mystery in modern day (1964) Wales by the author of the Brother Cadfael series, this story is part village mystery and part police procedural. An easy read, and a reasonably disguised villain. ( )
  ffortsa | Dec 22, 2009 |
This is one of Ms. Peters' modern-day mysteries, involving the disappearance of the beautiful young Annet Beck on the mysterious Hallowmount (based, I suspect, on the Stiperstones). When she reappears after five days, she insists that she's only been gone for a couple of hours. Both George and Dominic Felse (at this stage still in the sixth form) feature, together with the impressionable young teacher Tom Kenyon. It transpires that Annet has accidentally become involved with a rather sordid murder, but she continues to refuse to speak. There's a rather implausibly melodramatic conclusion (back on the Hallowmount). Not one of her best, in my view, but still worth reading once. ( )
