Celebrated by Cathy Rentzenbrink, this glorious rediscovered classic exploring the mystery of a buried Cornish hotel is perfect for Agatha Christie and Daphne du Maurier fans ... 'Hilarious and perceptive, here's the perfect seaside holiday read.' Daily Mail'The miniature charm of a Baby Austen.' Observer'Entertaining, beautifully written, and profound.' Tracy Chevalier'Tense, touching, human, dire, and funny ... A feast indeed.' Elizabeth Bowen'Kennedy is not only a romantic but an anarchist.' Anita Brookner'So full of pleasure that you could be forgiven for not seeing how clever it is.' Cathy Rentzenbrink'Oh boy, what a treat; wonderfully sharp and funny ...

Page-turningly good!' Lissa EvansCornwall, Midsummer 1947. Pendizack Manor Hotel is buried in the rubble of a collapsed cliff. Seven guests have perished, but what brought this strange assembly together for a moonlit feast before this Act of God - or Man? Over the week before the landslide, we meet the hotel guests in all their eccentric glory: and as friendships form and romances blossom, sins are revealed, and the cracks widen ...

Reader Reviews:'Really clever - but readable. Perfect for a sunlounger (in the garden!)''One of the best books I have ever read ... Viva Ms.

Kennedy, you were truly marvellous!' *****'The best book I've ever read. Yes, I know that's a big statement! Kennedy is quickly becoming my all-time favorite author ... A first-rate literary genius.' *****'This is bar none, one of the best books I have ever read.' *****'A magnificent rediscovery ...

Kennedy's masterpiece is a searing and unflinching look at postwar England ... Elegantly and tartly written, this smart and haunting novel offers one of the most unforgettable endings ... A brilliant and moving literary feast to be enjoyed without any moderation! *****'I'm longing to read this again! Clever Kennedy! Is it a thriller? Is it a morality play or an exploration of divine justice? Or is it a family/village saga and maybe even a romance? ...

Terrifically readable with a marvellous cast.' *****'This isn't just the story of a Cornish summer holiday gone horribly wrong. Kennedy is, in fact, doing something much cleverer and more sophisticated - offering us the chance to solve a very unusual kind of mystery ... An unexpectedly engaging literary game.' ****'Such a good idea, and brilliantly executed ...

I was unable to stop reading, absorbed completely in the company of the motley group. It's almost like you're eavesdropping on them. After finishing it, I find myself still thinking about it ...

A fabulous read.' *****'One of my favorite kinds of books: a forgotten treasure. The writing is exemplary ... Many, many fine moments.' ****
