"Disa Odell had never been to Florida before. Why, then, did lonely Mound Key, the private island of the theatrical Loring family, seem so familiar - and so threatening? Why had her mother Johanna expressed reluctance about Disa's plan to visit Villa Vespero, the Lorings' 'House of the Evening Star,' an Italian-Renaissance-like structure with stately columned entrances? After all, Celia Loring, who operated an acting school on the estate was Johanna Odell's best friend. And Ross Mitchell, Disa's lean, dark-haired fiancé, was employed at the school. Now Ross's letters are vague, suggesting they postpone the wedding until 'certain problems' at Villa Vespero were resolved. Uneasy about her impending confrontation with Ross, Disa was further unnerved when she narrowly avoided a head-on collision while driving to Mound Key. Arriving at the villa, she found the house shadowy and silent. But someone was there to greet her - an unkempt man holding a hatchet whose blade gleamed faintly in the last light of the dying day."; 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall
