About This Item
London, Viking, 1986, hardcover, 300 pp, First Edition, First Printing, Very Good+ in Very Good+ dustjacket. Straight, tight and clean with no markings. Dustjacket price-clipped, slight wear to head and heel of spine in new, Brodart sleeve. A beautiful copy of the prolific mystery writer's first Edgar winner, a prime example of her family-centric, psychological thriller style.
Like most families, they had their secrets... And they hid them under a genteelly respectable veneer. No onlooker would guess that prim Vera Hillyard and her beautiful, adored younger sister, Eden, were locked in a dark and bitter combat over one of those secrets. England in the fifties was not kind to women who erred, so they had to use every means necessary to keep the truth hidden behind closed doors - even murder.
