Publisher Description

It is a chilly and foggy Twelfth Night, wild with North Sea wind, when a bizarre murder disturbs the outward piece of Rackmoor, a tiny Yorkshire fishing village with a past that proves a tangled maze of unrequited loves, unrevenged wrongs, and even undiscovered murders.

Inspector Jury finds no easy answers in his investigation—not even the identity of the victim, a beautiful young woman. Was she Gemma Temple, an impostor, or was she really Dillys March, Colonel Titus Crael’s long-lost ward, returning after eight years to the Colonel’s country seat and to a share of his fortune? And who was her murderer?

Excellent Mystery, Incomplete Text

Excellent early Grimes; an author you should pick up if you've read your Christie and Sayers too many times.
The only problem I've found is that the end of Chapter I is missing. The paragraph ends abruptly mid- paragraph on the page preceeding the Chapter II page.
