Invited to protect an actress within the rose red walls of a fairy-tale castle, Detective Cordelia Gray finds the stage is set for death.Actress Clarissa Lisle has always been famous for her ravishing beauty--and her unscrupulous manipulations. Now on the death-shrouded island of Courcy, her schemes win her a starring role in a nightmare in which she can trust no one--not her deceived husband; her dangerously insecure stepson; her ominously genial host; her dependent, desperate cousin; or her cruelly amusing ex-lover. Soon Detective Cordelia gray finds that nothing is as it seems on Courcy--especially after the curtain goes down. Here she must delve into ancient secrets and guilt-stained pasts--and risk her life to stop a brilliantly cunning murderer who has set the stage for her death.

I enjoy PD James and her plot twists. I had decided several times that I knew who had "done it' then several times revised my opinion. It was a satisfying read with a new, for me, heroine Cordelia Gray.

Not one of my favorites - lots of characters, too confusing.
