    Description
    Fiction's most stylish and driven detective VI Warshawski is back with a tale of dead bodies, terrorism and political intrigue . . .

    When a ninety-one-year-old woman in the wealthy town of New Solway becomes suspicious of goings-on in her old home, Larchmont Hall, VI is called in to investigate. What she finds is more that she bargained for - a dead journalist in the ornamental pond, a young Arab boy hiding in the attic, an abandoned golf cart, and a few more surprises besides.

    All this puts the indomitable VI on a trail which leads her back to the McCarthy era and the involvement of the elderly and respected Calvin Bayard, a major figure on First Amendment circles and CEO of the Bayard Publishing Group.

    Larchmont Hall, as it turns out, is now home to absolute mayhem and, in the course of her investigations, VI finds herself dealing with the demands and whims of the elderly, lovestruck teenagers, and a neighbourhood with more secrets than you would expect. Add to this a strong whiff of anti-communism and a very modern anti-Islamic hysteria, and VI is faced with enough unravelling to keep her busy for quite a while . . .
