On Tara Hill, near Dublin, is the site where “The House of a Thousand Soldiers” once stood. An archaeologist becomes involved in a project to rebuild “The House of Soldiers” and to repeople it for a day with living images of the soldiers who had once caroused there. But behind the project is a plot and James Maguire soon finds himself in a predicament from which there seems to be no escape.

Andrew Garve’s realism and ingenuity is given full rein in this account of Maguire’s desperate but calculated actions to free himself from the trap.

‘Of all the English writers of detection one of the most original, certainly the most versatile in subject, is Andrew Garve.’ Daily Telegraph
