Summary

The pioneer of romantic suspense, Mary Stewart leads her listeners on an unforgettable ride across the Isle of Skye in this tale perfect for fans of Agatha Christie and Barbara Pym.

Following a heartbreaking divorce, Gianetta retreats to the Isle of Skye hoping to find tranquillity in the island's savage beauty. But shortly before her arrival a girl's body is found on the craggy slopes of the looming Blue Mountain, and with the murderer still on the loose, there's nothing to stop him from setting his sights on Gianetta next....

One arrogant wing of rock thrust itself across the sun, flinging a diagonal shadow over the bay. My eye was drawn to the great lonely bulk of the mountain in the east, stooping over the valley like a hawk. Blaven. The Blue Mountain.

Strong voice and great thrilling story

Happy to hear such a strong voice. MaryStewart's other books are read by childish voices.

Classic Mary Stewart

A dark tale of suspense with all the right elements of intrigue, drama and romance, set against a beautifully portrayed backdrop of Skye. Excellently narrated.

Just as good as I remembered

I read this book about 45 years ago and it still has the same tension and intrigue now as it did then - a wonderful book

Pronunciation bad, story good

This book must hold the record for the most mispronounced words in the shortest time but if you can get beyond that, it is an enjoyable tale.

I love Mary Stewart’s writing style. This book had me gripped all the way through.

Beautiful!

Copyright 1956??? This book is nearly as old as I am, but this is as fresh and lively a thriller as any newly-minted work.
Mary Stewart's descriptions of the land around the Cuillin, in the spring of the 1953 Coronation, are breath-takingly beautiful, and her gutsy heroine is the equal of any modern character.
Lucy Paterson's narration was wonderful and vivid, and the accents good (apart from Auld Lang Zyne, instead of the soft Scottish Syne, but that is one of my personal bugbears and does not detract from the story).
Another enthralling, excellent Audible production.
