British journalist Hilary Blyth famously liked a drop or two as well as a midnight dip, and when his body was fished out of the sparkling waters near the notorious Hounds Teeth rocks, the inquest was satisfied he died by tragic accident. His widowMoreBritish journalist Hilary Blyth famously liked a drop or two as well as a midnight dip, and when his body was fished out of the sparkling waters near the notorious Hounds Teeth rocks, the inquest was satisfied he died by tragic accident.

His widow Faye disagreed, but she went a little crazy after her husbands death, and everyone was highly relieved when she went back to England...Three people converge on a secluded Italian idyll by the sea somewhere between Rome and Naples. None of them is on holiday: the Hon.

Veronica Dearborn has refused to sell the film rights of her notorious memoir and escapes London on a commission to interview painter Cadwallader Jones, the eccentric elderly widower of a famous mystery novelist. Her friend Freddy, Cadwalladers nephew, a gambling-addicted food-writer, is paying a visit on a working vacation, hoping his uncle is not spending all his inheritance.

Julian Blyth, an injured orchestral violinist, has come to settle the estate of his late brother.Welcomed at first by the tight-knit ex-pat community, the three visitors quickly realise they have stepped on a nest of vipers, and Julian begins to wonder if his sister-in-law might not be right after all...A sophisticated satire,Circled By The Sands displays the ex-pat middle-classes at their hilariously appalling worst: a community that settles in Europe but remains immured in its own monoglot world, having little in common except a shared language and a mutual sense of displacement, and whose relations are fuelled by jealousy, competition and an uneasy sense of mutual protection, while the ‘real’ Italy remains enigmatic and elusive.Hilary Blyth had known Italy, its language, ramified politics and regional subtleties very well, but, as Julian begins to discover, he could not resist pursuing an intrigue, regardless of the danger ‘from within’...
