Synopses & Reviews
The gentlemen and ladies gathered at Ashworth Hall for what appears to be a long social weekend in the country are in fact Irish political figures, Protestants and Catholics, reluctantly drawn together in hopes of finally resolving the volatile issue of home rule for Ireland. But when a mysterious murder is committed and a simmering political scandal erupts into public outrage, the historic summit seems doomed. Unless Scotland Yard's Superintendent Thomas Pitt and his clever wife can root out the truth, more murder could occur--and Ireland could erupt into civil war.
ASHWORTH HALL once again splendidly demonstrates that, as The Cleveland Plain Dealer has said, "her grasp of Victorian character and conscience still astonishes".
