About this product
- DescriptionDavid Burnsall, a small-time military publisher, is on holiday in Greece with his wife Sue when he learns that his father-in-law has killed himself. As the head of an Oxford College, Sir Henry Pewsey's death sparks off unpleasant rumours about a hidden scandal from his past. When Sue leaves him for a good-looking historian with a prurient interest in Pewsey's papers, it's left to David to try and save his father-in-law's reputation. In investigating his life though - in particular his war-time collaboration with the Greek resistance, he is caught up in a violent race which ends, dramatically and unexpectedly, on an island in the Ionian Sea.
