"After many years working around the world for an international charity in the late 1960s, Eleanor Trewynn has retired to the relative quiet of a small town in Cornwall. But her quiet life is short-lived when, due to her experience, the Commonwealth Relations Office reaches out to her to assist in a secret conference that is to take place in a small hotel outside the historical village of Tintagel. Meanwhile, her niece, Detective Sargent Megan Pencarrow, is investigating the disappearance of a local solicitor when she is assigned to help provide security for the conference. Two African students, refugees from Ian Smith's Rhodesia, arrive for the conference, escorted by Megan's bête noire from Scotland Yard. They are followed by two mysterious and sinister Londoners, whose allegiances and connections to the conference and the missing solicitor are unclear. With a raging storm having trapped everyone in the hotel, the stage is set for murder, and it's up to Eleanor and Megan to uncover the truth before more lives are lost"-- Provided by publisher.

I had never read anything from Carola Dunn before, so I was hoping this would be a good story. I'm not sure why it didn't click for me, because it had everything in it that I like in a good British mystery (light reading); but it didn't. I just couldn't get interested in the characters or the story line. I finally gave up after 4 or 5 chapters, something I rarely do; but I had decided I really didn't care how it ended.

This isn't to say that some of her other characters might not be more interesting than this one. I may try another one another time. Possibly the fact that this may not have been the first in the series may have been a reason, too.

Hopefully some fans did find this book a good read. Unfortunately, I didn't.
