No one, except possibly Chip, knows anything about her previous life. Fran insists on drawing them in the evening against the blank-black night outside, when Mark would leave them undrawn, secure and unperturbed in his lighted glass cube. So does Chip, with his strange, fey companion, Bibi Morgan, who came to Membery several years ago with her young son Jasie and scant explanation. She must have persuaded the boy who works for Alyssa in the gardens to deliver the note on his way home. Could one of them have had reason to kill her? Interlocking spaces rather than rooms meet her, a suspended staircase and a mezzanine floor.

Keen insight into all her characters, primary and secondary, plus realistic settings, make this one of Eccles's best. The author of over twenty novels, she is also a writer of short stories and her books have been translated into many languages and serialized in British and foreign magazines. About as far from that as you could get. Chip, of all people, who might have been expected to settle down eventually with some county gel with a loud laugh, a shiny-haired bob and a way with horses. As and when she has the money. While fans may miss the author's usual police team, Det.

Not everyone shares her passion for it, much less for the animals. No garden, just a large, grassy space beneath the little waterfall and the pool, the backdrop of trees behind it. Membery, an old mansion where pictures of the long deceased Judge Calvert still hang in judgment around every corner, hides any number of dark family secrets. Has the child too been killed, or has he been abducted because he saw his mother's murder? It was Mark who built The Watersplash, stark and ultramodern, on the grounds of picturesque Membery Place, where his mother Alyssa has turned the vast garden into a showplace that attracts hundreds of visitors each year. The point is that there are other factors that make it a good place to work.

Mark's wife, Francesca, has been conscious of an intriguing element of mystery surrounding Bianca Morgan ever since Chip, the eldest Calvert brother, brought her and her child to live with him at Membery. He keeps an eye on her car and stops her from forgetting to make out her tax forms. Jostling her way through the shuffling crowds, she steps on to the down escalator, where a couple of tourists very nearly cause a major pile-up by stopping dead at the bottom and opening their map. But it had been Mark her attention had fixed on: then, and ever thereafter. The fruitless search for Bianca's killer and the kidnapper forces Francesca to take matters into her own hands, determined to resolve the mystery of the Calvert family. Mark's wife, Fran, inadvertently becomes involved when she looks into Mark's strange behavior on her own. Below it, set in a forest clearing, is a modern, award-winning house designed by architect Mark Calvert, one of Alyssa Calvert's three sons.

The fruitless search for Bianca's killer and the kidnapper forces Francesca to take matters into her own hands, determined to resolve the mystery of the Calvert family. Gradually, the tense band around her skull eases as she drives up the wooded hill, one of the ridges of the Chilterns set high among rolling chalk uplands. The fruitless search for Bianca's killer and the kidnapper forces Francesca to take matters into her own hands, determined to resolve the mystery of the Calvert family. The focus of the inquiry shifts dramatically when Bianca's nine-year-old son goes missing. But at least, the lack of a garden poses no problems of maintenance: a scything of the soft, lush grass twice a year, occasional attempts to keep back the encroaching bracken are all that is needed. Could one of them have had reason to kill her? No one, except possibly Chip, knows anything about her previous life.

Annoyed with herself, ignoring the thought of what construction Claire would put on such a lapse, she puts the fruit back in the fridge. Perhaps hoping to please him. One for all and all for one.
