A Dark-Adapted Eye




Six of Barbara Vine's bestselling backlist titles stunningly rejacketed to coincide with the paperback of The Birthday Present

Like most families, they had their secrets...

And they hid them under a genteelly respectable veneer. No onlooker would guess that prim Vera Hillyard and her beautiful, adored younger sister, Eden, were locked in a dark and bitter combat over one of those secrets. England in the fifties was not kind to women who erred, so they had to use every means necessary to keep the truth hidden behind closed doors - even murder.
