Waterstones Says

Boasting an irresistible Cornish coast setting and a cast of richly painted characters, this rediscovered classic about a moonlit feast and the fatal landslide that follows it is a bona fide Golden Age Crime treat.

Cornwall, Midsummer 1947.

Pendizack Manor Hotel is buried in the rubble of a collapsed cliff. Seven guests have perished, but what brought this strange assembly together for a moonlit feast before this Act of God - or Man?

Over the week before the landslide, we meet the hotel guests in all their eccentric glory: and as friendships form and romances blossom, sins are revealed, and the cracks widen ... A wise, witty fable, The Feast is a banquet indeed.

“What lies beneath the surface”

There is so much more to this than meets the eye - a classic seaside mystery where the ending is known from the start, a literary game with character’s hidden depths slowly revealed and a treatise on morality and... More

“A delectable delight”

I loved this book – it is such a me book! When it arrived at work my colleagues immediately pegged it as an ‘Emma read’ and they were right. For a start the cover is just divine, I could look at it for hours. But it’s... More
