Elizabeth Lange is still reeling from the death of international film starlet Leila De Salle, her beloved sister. In the frame for the killing is Leila’s handsome, famous fiancé Ted Winters. Before the trial in which she is the chief witness, Elizabeth decides to take a break and relax in Pebble Beach, an exclusive Californian spa. She made the wrong decision. Before too long, from all around her, people begin to emerge – people who all had cause to hate, and maybe even murder, her sister. Elizabeth realises her idyllic vacation is about to take a horrifying turn for the worst – and that someone is out to shatter the peace and quiet by silencing her forever…


Another MHC’s story huh? You might be thinking that I’m now back on digging another of hers for one straight month eh? I don’t think I am. It’s just that, I miss reading her stories and FYI there’s still a ton of hers in my reading list 😛

And about this story, well, it’s just actually a short read. I could possibly finish it in just one sitting, but surprisingly, it took me a week. Well, I have some good reasons for that. First, I was busy with my job; second, I was also working on my so called “artwork” before Christmas so I could hand it out proudly as a gift to my friends (how sweet of me eh? lol); and lastly, which I am really disappointed to say, this story started so dull that it’s even hard for me to keep up.

In normal circumstances, I could have rated this story 3 stars of worse 2 stars but instead I lit up the 4 stars. But wait, for you haven’t heard more, hehehe. Given what I said that it started dull, and yeah it is, but totally just in the start. Who would have thought that the suspense and the never ending guessing and confusing part or whom what is known as the “who done it” part that I never anticipated in this short story finally subsided after that boring introduction. Too bad, I wish I could have waited so I could be able to finish it early.

I started reading this last Sunday and which I decided to resume this Saturday. And guess what? I finished it for just half a day! That’s how this story is so engrossing. And as usual, I’m still that lame on guessing the real culprit! MHC, you’re still damn good in always making me feel stupid on coming up with my suspects.

It is widely known that MHC’s most loved characters were Alvirah and Willy Meehan. And I must say, you, fans should read it, for Alvirah is much present in here though Willy is due only on the last few chapters of the story.

There’s some quite a number of English terms that I couldn’t really understand without the help of the dictionary, but is still cool. The scenes we’re all so fresh to me and ofcourse, the happy ending and a twist of romance is highly attainable in this book. And any complains about its characters or any flaws seen? Well, so far, nothing. I almost regard it as perfect without the boring opening.

I think that sums it all. Read the story and be ready for a never-ending confusion. Ciao!

Rating: 4 out of 5 stars
