Inhaltsangabe

A desperate letter from her best friend sends Lady Jane rushing from her cozy Cornwall home to the remote reaches of Northumberland. Alison's frantic plea for help hints that something sinister is going on in the gloomy halls of Winton Park, so Jane braves the misty moors in the dead of winter to get to her pregnant and bedridden friend.

A menacing sense of doom grips Jane the moment she arrives at the isolated Victorian estate. Charlotte, the lady of the manor, suffers mysterious fits and fainting spells, while her husband ignores his family to obsess over his orchid collection and the pursuit of the elusive and priceless black orchid. When Lady Charlotte's maid is found dead on the moors, Jane realizes that sickness and greed are not Winton Park's worst afflictions. Now they have a murder on their hands.

Only someone as inquisitive and determined as Lady Jane can uncover the dark secrets that link these events. Can she do it before another life is lost?

    "Not convincing"

    After I had really enjoyed The Girl at Rosewood Hall, I looked forward to another great mystery.

    The scene was set well, the bleakness and coldness were transferred well, however, the story couldn't quite keep my attention this time, and so I went to listen to other books before eventually returning to this one. I don't really know what it was, but maybe it just wasn't the right time.

    Those extremely long letters from the jungle, which didn't add anything to the story, probably added to the fact that my interest faded. I'm usually delighted to learn new things, but this was somehow too much, and too drawn out. And although I'm ready to believe most things in fiction, I wasn't really convinced this time.

    Add to this that the narrator's lisp irritated me a lot more than it would have done had the book managed to keep my attention, and there you are -- a nice story still, but far from reaching the first sequel.
