Twenty-year-old Amanda Derrington is on an extended cruise with her uncle when she decides to make a short trip to the sun-washed island of Cyprus. But even before the ship arrives in the port, there is a suspicious death. Once the passengers reach the island, it soon becomes clear that the death was in fact an act of murder. What Amanda had meant to be a pleasant excursion quickly takes a turn for the worse in M. M. Kaye's Death in Cyprus, a classic novel of suspense and romance by one of our most celebrated writers.
Praise for Death in Cyprus
“M.M. Kaye outdoes Agatha Christie in palming the ace.” —San Diego Union-Tribune
“It is good to have these...mysteries back, for they are well-constructed novels about life in colonial settings now long gone, a life Kaye knew at firsthand. The reader can feel the heat and the racial and sexual antagonisms-for they are the real thing, no pastiche.” —The Boston Globe
“M.M. Kaye has a marvelous touch with atmosphere, place, and time.” —Houston Chronicle
