This new case takes Superintendent Littlejohn and Sergeant Cromwell to the spectacular wilderness of the Camargue area in France. They are following the trail of a missing dealer in antiques and a miniature portrait,which he had acquired earlier which may or may not be valuable.
The team from Scotland Yard have a couple of murders to solve,and there is also quite an unusual death and indeed a unique sort of killer at the conclusion of the story. However it is in the description of the beautiful scenery and the ambience of the whole area that makes this book a really great read.
One of Bellairs best. ( )
