(Sutton, Surrey): Severn House, (1992). 0727845764 / 9780727845764 First hardcover edition, first printing. Hardcover. Fine in textured blue boards with gilt titles to the spine; a fine dust jacket with a compellingly eerie illustration of a snake head, bird body, and lit candles beneath lush leaves and orchids. Art rendered by Derek Colligan.
A mystery set in the Caribbean where two young adults spend their school holidays in their old family home. Suspense builds in this modern gothic-like mystery with Haitian Voodoo warnings, a strange woman in white, and a step-mother.
