Fans of Emmy Tibbett, have we got the book for you! Emmy and Henry are vacationing (natch) with friends in the Caribbean, where they meet a sprightly and delightful spinster who spins a fascinating yarn about a young woman lost at sea and then (perhaps) found again. The yarn gets yet more fascinating when the spinster herself disappears, and Henry—wry, unflappable Henry Tibbett of Scotland Yard—responds in a most uncharacteristic fashion. It’s up to Emmy to untangle the clues, contending with drug smugglers on the one hand and an addled husband on the other. And did we mention the hurricanes? Emmy, of course, has resources to spare, so much so that we wish we could bring her back for a series of her very own.
“Carrying on the tradition of the classic British mystery…this is Patricia Moyes at her best” —New York Times
