Caroline Farr: House of Secrets
House of Secrets was published by Signet in February 1973. Leonie Glendenning finds out that she is an heiress to Inverness, the stone house were her mother still lives and can she figure out the mysterious circumstances of her father's death?
Allan Kass illustrates our heroine standing dangerously close to water while she flees the house on the cliff. Note her gold bracelet which is a Kass element! It looks as if she's trying to move carefully over rough and steep terrain. I almost think the cover has a cluttered feel, which is unusual for Allan's work.
