Brian Mason was confused. Behind the luxurious facade of the exclusive, elegant Beaumont Retirement and Convalescent Home exterior, with its magnificent position on the cliffs and its thrilling views, lived a mainly grey-headed world of deceit, lies, seduction, criminal activities, even Murder – and Murder not once, but again and again!
This was supposed to be his 'health cure'. Instead, he was being plunged into a world of vice; pretense; fabulous wealth; sordid, vicious crime and betrayal. He was a writer, not a detective; a weaver of words, recovering from illness; not a muscle-bound 'super-hero'.
Brian struggles to cope with all he discovers, and the people with whom he has to live; finally when he was beginning – as he thought – to have success in uncovering the master-minds behind the crimes, he is forced to engage in a life and death situation from which it was doubtful he could ever escape.
