Summary

Isobel Seton, a witty New Yorker, is riding to a lodge in the wilds of Quebec in the middle of a blizzard. When the driver stops the bus in the middle of nowhere and walks off into the heavy snowstorm, the stranded would-be skiers find themselves in the middle of a mystery that ranks among Millar’s best.

A mistress of the genre

It is years since I read a Margaret Millar book and I had forgotten how good she was. Here a very mixed bag of travellers, en route to a ski lodge in Quebec, are snowbound in their bus and forced to take shelter in a lonely house, occupied by a mad elderly woman and her somewhat grim nurse/warder. People disappear and bodies appear, relationships form and break-up. The mystery is spooky in parts, someone is obviously not who they pretend to be but the story is leavened with lots of humour and I will not leave it so long before I read another Margaret Millar.
