"Hildagonda Duckitt was an outstanding figure at the Cape in the grand Victorian times and most of us think of her as the South African Mrs. Beeton. But, like that charming and elegant lady, Hildagonda Duckitt was more to her contemporaries than the author of a very special cookery book. ... She comes down to us as the representative of an age of dignified hospitality in our country.

Description:
(London: Viking, 1995). 8vo; original pink boards; laminated pictorial dustwrapper; pp. (vi) + 193. Dustwrapper and edges of boards slightly rubbed. Very good condition. "On a lonely stretch of road near a small coastal town a murder is committed. There is no one to witness the act and no one who could predict the bizarre repercussions which must inevitably follow. By taking on the identity of his victim, the murderer cannot foresee the sequence of events which, once set in motion, are inescapable, not only for him, but for all the town's inhabitants - from the light-fingered Valentine, who unwittingly leads them to the body, to Captain Mong, who cannot rest until he gets his man. And beneath the apparent workings of justice, contradictory forces are at war ... " .
