In the spellbinding new mystery by the master of “the
clever twist,” a group of ex-RAF comrades journey to a
Scottish castle for a reunion. But by the time they reach
their destination, two of them are dead.
Barnett is leading a contented life in Vancouver with his
wife and daughter when he is brought back to England by
the death of his mother. He intends to spend just a few
days sorting out her affairs when a chance meeting he will
regret for the rest of his life makes him change his
plans. Two old acquaintances from his National Service
days track Harry down to his mother’s house — the last
address they had for him. A lavish reunion has been
organized to mark the fiftieth anniversary of their RAF
days. Harry decides to go.
During the war, Harry
and his fellow RAF conscripts spent three months in a
Scottish castle where they acted as guinea pigs in a
psychological experiment. The reunion is to take place in
the same castle. It will be a chance to see friends,
settle old scores and lay a few ghosts to rest.
party begins on the train up to Aberdeen, until the
apparent suicide of one of their number shatters the
holiday atmosphere. Their arrival in Scotland seems under
a cloud, and when another comrade dies soon after their
arrival, Harry is gripped by a sense of foreboding. As
well, the recollections of the old comrades of their time
in the castle are frighteningly different, and unexplained
events from 1955 still haunt them. As Harry tries to solve
the mystery of what really happened fifty years ago, he
uncovers an extraordinary secret that convinces him he
will never leave the castle alive.
