"Mason's prose is unremarkable, as is his distinctly unfascinating attempt at 'larger themes,' but his storytelling is solid and his sense of intrigue nicely developed."
From the Publisher
Annotation British author Richard Mason was a 19-year-old student at Oxford University when this, his debut novel, was first published. This story of passion, betrayal, and murder begins with a confession from the protagonist, 70-year-old James Farrell. It appears he has just killed his wife. As James reveals the details surrounding his wife's death, he offers a dark tale of the events leading up to her unfortunate demise, beginning with his tumultuous affair with her cousin, an American heiress, in the early 1990s when he was but a struggling young violinist.
Editors Note A debut novel of passion, revenge, and murder among Britain's upper class--written by a 20-year-old student at Oxford. An aspiring young musician falls in love with an exquisitely beautiful aristocrat and enters into a love affair with her--in defiance of all the strict standards of English society.
Editors Note 2 A past based on the betrayal of a friend leads to revenge and murder in the life of James Farrell, a musician whose overwhelming love for the beautiful aristocrat Ella Harewood leads him into an intense love affair that defies the proper standards of English society
