Solange Peters ‘died’ – and so did the scandal and suspicion that haunted her. So now she has the chance for a new life . . .

Classic crime from one of the greats of the Detection Club

A bizarre accident gave Solange the chance to assume a new identity – and, as Julie Taylor, she set out to do just that, as companion to wealthy, neurotic Bianca Duncan. But soon she is plunged into a distorted and terrifying existence. A menace to Bianca’s life is growing daily and a strange young man could expose Julie’s masquerade. Suddenly the new identity seems far from safe, as Julie is forced to fight for her own life.
