Overview
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.

About the author
