After many years working around the world for an international charity in the late 1960s, Eleanor Trewynn has retired to the relative quiet of a small town in Cornwall. But her quiet life is short-lived when, due to her experience, the Commonwealth Relations Office reaches out to her to assist in a secret conference that is to take place in a small hotel outside the historical village of Tintagel. Meanwhile, her niece, Detective Sargent Megan Pencarrow, is investigating the disappearance of a local solicitor when she is assigned to help provide security for the conference. Two African students, refugees from Ian Smith s Rhodesia, arrive for the conference, escorted by Megan s bete noire from Scotland Yard. They are followed by two mysterious and sinister Londoners, whose allegiances and connections to the conference and the missing solicitor are unclear. With a raging storm having trapped everyone in the hotel, the stage is set for murder, and it s up to Eleanor and Megan to uncover the truth before more lives are lost. "

I had never read anything from Carola Dunn before, so I was hoping this would be a good story. I'm not sure why it didn't click for me, because it had everything in it that I like in a good British mystery (light reading); but it didn't. I just couldn't get interested in the characters or the story line. I finally gave up after 4 or 5 chapters, something I rarely do; but I had decided I really didn't care how it ended.

This isn't to say that some of her other characters might not be more interesting than this one. I may try another one another time. Possibly the fact that this may not have been the first in the series may have been a reason, too.

Hopefully some fans did find this book a good read. Unfortunately, I didn't.
