Overview

A beach house at a French resort is gutted by fire. Trapped inside are two women - one rich and the other poor. Only one of them survives, burnt beyond recognition and in a state of total amnesia. Who is she, the heiress or her penniless friend? A killer, or an intended victim?

Reviews

Jarispot's highly engaging crime novels have enjoyed amazing success in his native France. Like Rider in the Rain, Trap for Cinderella seems to lose nothing in translation. Certainly, the gripping story justifies comparisons with the early novels of George Simenon, for Japrisot's plot grips like a trap. Trap has a remarkable premise: the protagonist is a detective, murderer, victim and witness all at once. Who is the scarred, amnesiac survivor of a beach house gutted by fire - perpetrator or target? (Kirkus UK)
