" Elaine Feinstein's DARK INHERITANCE is a wonderfully readable thriller which marries glamour and danger, with a heroine who nearly loses the meaning of her own life as she pursues the truth about the lives of others. Feinstein writes fascinatingly about the power of auotbiography, and the risks that telling your own story can bring." HELEN DUNMORE

" In turning her impressively versatile talents to a new genre, Elaine Feinstein has fashioned a clued-up tale of literary detection that offers all the pleasures of a first-rate novel. Written with all her customary insight and powers of observation, Dark Inheritance is a compulsively readable thriller that tells us as much about the mysteries of authorship as of crime." EVA HOFFMANN

'This is a stunning novel, ruthlessly brilliant. It has the pace of a thriller and the passion of a love story.' FAY WELDON

'She is a subtle, poignant poet in her own right, and the author of a number of intensely crystallised, allusive fictions that are truly the novels of a poet. The pulse of narrative and of dramatic voice is vivid in her verse. Everything she has published is instinct with caring, with a rare intelligence of pain' GEORGE STEINER in the NEW YORKER

'Lucid and beautifully structured, ... the confident pacing of an accomplished novelist. in complete control of her craft.' STELLA TILLYARD, THE TIMES
