Product Description

About the Author

Jane Aiken Hodge was born in Massachusetts to Pulitzer prize-winning poet, Conrad Aiken, and his first wife, writer Jessie McDonald. Hodge was 3 years old when her family moved to Great Britain, settling in Rye, East Sussex, where her younger sister, Joan, who would become a novelist and a children's writer, was born. From 1935, Jane Hodge read English at Somerville College, Oxford University, and in 1938 she took a second degree in English at Radcliffe College. She was a civil servant, and also worked for Time Magazine, before returning to the UK in 1947. Her works of fiction include historical novels and contemporary detective novels. In 1972 she renounced her United States citizenship and became a British subject.

I have had this book for years, and really love re-reading it. A classical tour with murder and mystery hovering over the company - and it makes me want to take the classical tour myself, and steep myself in Greek Mythology.

A little bit of suspended disbelief needed at the beginning to accept the "job" the heroine takes. Jane Aiken Hodge always tells a good story, and she has a wonderful feel of "place". This was an enjoyable tale, comfort reading at its best. Only four stars because, looked at afterwards, some of the plot lines are a bit tenuous.

Read this years ago, as a young teenager, and I actually think I enjoyed it more this time, in my late 50's

I'm a big fan, but preferred her historical novels to her (relatively) modern stories.
