Curse the Darkness

By Grant-Adamson, Lesley

London: Faber & Faber, 1991. The fifth mystery featuring Rain Morgan (after Guilty Knowledge ) is a highly original, satisfying tale. When Alf Wilson, an elderly screenwriter, "invites" his neighbors and gossip-columnist/sleuth Rain to discover his body hanging from his chandelier, it is an invitation for Rain to investigate whether the situation is a case of murder or not. In the meantime, novelist John Gower--whose success is thus far measured in positive reviews rather than in money--stages his own death in order to win publicity for his work. Unfortunately for Gower, the scheme works too well. While Gower's estranged wife and his agent reap the rewards, the author is left to hide in a remote cottage and later in an urban squatters' digs. He writes the masterpiece of his career, but finds himself leading a life increasingly similar to that of his own fictional main character. A mystery on two levels, with Rain's pursuit of the truth running parallel to the action in the false disappearance, the novel also examines the writing life as experienced by a journalist, a screenwriter and a novelist. A smashing conclusion brings Rain and Gower together in dangerous circumstances.. Softcover. Very Good.

The Face in the Cemetery : A Mamur Zapt Mystery

By Pearce, Michael

London: Harper Collins, 2002. It is the beginning of the war and Gareth Owen, Mamur Zapt and Head of Cairo's Secret Police, is unhappily rounding up enemy aliens. But nationality is a slippery thing in cosmopolitan Egypt. Who counts as German? And whose is the face in the cemetery? Owen would prefer to have to answer neither of these questions. He is preoccupied with missing guns (missing? in war time?) and dubious ghaffirs. Villages usually pick Dogberry-type simpletons as their watchmen. But what are these toughs doing here? And this heavily-armed, thumb-sucking girl? The face in the cemetery, though, refuses to go away, and Owen comes to realize that it poses questions that are not just professional but uncomfortably personal. . 1st Pbk Ed.. Softcover. Very Good.
