Annie and Max Darling are completely unprepared when the arrival of a mysterious young woman shocks their sea island and stirs up more than just gossip. It turns out that Iris, the beautiful stranger, is a former resident of Broward's Rock. Her arrival throws the normally happy town into a downward spiral that pits neighbor against neighbor. Things take a turn for the worse when Annie befriends Iris and invites her to attend the Darlings' party at the pavilion where Death is the uninvited guest. Suddenly, Max and Annie find themselves in the middle of a fight they don't understand and at the mercy of an unknown assailant who's trying to kill them-and all they know is that it is one of their friends.

"This engaging whodunit takes place in Broward's Rock, South Carolina, where Max and Annie Darling are staying at Nightingale Court while their antebellum mansion, the Franklin House, is being renovated. The gifted Kate Reading delivers an engaging performance that keeps listeners focused despite the leisurely pace of the plot. Accents for natives of the idyllic island are charming yet clear, and Reading easily finds believable male voices for Max and police chief Billy Cameron as they investigate two murders: one current and the other a cold case. Motives abound amid the intricate interrelationships of the distinctive supporting characters. A wonderful combination of delightful writing and delightful reading. S.C.A.
