Amanda Prantera

Capri File

JACKET NOTES:  Lola d'Aquaviva's marriage is in tatters and she has come to Capri to recoup. She thinks her rather creepy end of the island would make a suitably sombre backdrop for a novel - particularly the nearby Villa Fersen, where a rich, aristocratic paedophile caused a scandal several decades ago. Lola herself is English, but an Italian duchessa by marriage, and she is in e-mail correspondence with a Simon Parks of Ladbroke Grove, who is looking out second-hand books for her on the villainous Comte Fersen, and on Capri. But her machinations are raising strange reactions amongst the locals and unaccountable fury in her husband - and it is clear that something sinister is afoot. With the wit and elegance which are Prantera's trademarks, Capri File is drenched in atmosphere and crackling with suspense, keeping the reader on the hop until the very end.
