Revue de presse

'Alice de Janze was the true soul of Happy Valley - beautiful, irresistible, adventurous, fatally stranded in a remote landscape. Spicer has brought an extraordinary character out of the shadows.'
James Fox, author of White Mischief
“In Paul Spicer the notorious American expatriate and radiant beauty Alice de Janzé has finally met her match. Like Byron, she was "mad, bad and dangerous to know", one of those Pilgrim Daughters who traveled abroad and enriched the European aristocracy, becoming a social celebrity in Paris during the early 1920s. With the dedication and zest of a private detective, Paul Spicer pursues her into the ironically-named "Happy Valley" of equatorial East Africa where her melodramatic life ended in violence and tragedy. She appears like one of those extreme characters from the pages of Evelyn Waugh and Scott Fitzgerald. But, as Paul Spicer shows, truth is once again stranger than fiction.” —Michael Holroyd, author of A Strange Eventful History

Présentation de l'éditeur

In Kenya's 'Happy Valley' no one paid too much attention to the privileged colonial set as they farmed their estates, partied until dawn and indulged in extra-marital affairs. Not until Josslyn Hay, Earl of Erroll, was shot dead at the wheel of his Buick in the early hours of 24 January 1941. Some said the good-looking womaniser had it coming. He was a philanderer who could have had any number of enemies who wanted revenge. Ageing Jock Delves Broughton stood trial for Erroll's murder but was acquitted and the mystery remained unsolved - until now.
American heiress Alice de Janzé had been conducting a clandestine affair with Joss for years. Married into French aristocracy, her stunning beauty was to prove a fatal lure to men of adventure. Previously tried by a French court for shooting one of her lovers, scandal followed her wherever she went. She arrived in Kenya as a newly married Countess in the 1920s, but by 1941 she had turned forty and the years of partying had taken their toll. Pushed aside by Erroll for younger lovers, Alice was thrown into desperation, resulting in Errol's murder and her own tragic demise. The Temptress not only solves the mystery of Josslyn Hay's murder with the utmost conviction - it eloquently paints a portrait of a volatile, captivating woman.

Well written account of the Countess and her life reflecting society at that time. You'll love her and hate her but you won't put the book down.
