When American journalist Jethro Jones arrives in the seaside resort of Greenyard he finds in Dr Dysert a man of charming manners and great professional skill, dedicated to the care of his elderly patients - a man, moreover, who has risen above a series of private misfortunes. But what is it that the doctor, so modest a man, sees when he gazes at himself for so long in the mirror? And why is Jethro himself so interested in the doctor's little foibles - and in his matrimonial affairs?

About the author (2012)

Joan Fleming was one of the most original and literate crime writers of her generation. Born in Lancashire and educated at Lausanne University she became the wife of a Harley Street eye surgeon and mother of four, and was already a successful children's author before she turned to crime. She is the author of over thirty novels and won the CWA Gold Dagger in 1962 for When I Grow Rich and again in 1970 for Young Man, I Think You're Dying. The Deeds of Dr Deadcert was made into the 1958 film Rx for Murder.
