When her sister invites her to stay in Corfu, Lucy Waring couldn't be happier - a cheap holiday in the sun, in one of the most beautiful places in the world, offers a welcome change of pace from the noise and rain of London. What's more, their nearest neighbour on the island is a famous, reclusive actor...with a handsome, if arrogant, son.
But when a body washes up on the beach, Lucy finds herself caught in a vortex of danger, deceit and murder. A stray breeze moved the pines, and I heard a bee go past my cheek, travelling like a bullet.
The dolphin arched suddenly away in a deep dive. The sea sucked, swirled, and settled, rocking, back to emptiness.
Another bee shot past me, with a curious, high humming.
I understood then. I'd heard that sound before. Someone was shooting at the dolphin from the woods above the bay. Mary Stewart's eighth novel of gothic romance, This Rough Magic is a must-read for anyone who delights in adventure and romance.
Featuring her sparkling prose and witty dialogue, This Rough Magic has delighted readers for half a century.
