In this glittering tale of forgotten treasures and long-held
secrets, international bestseller Karen Swan explores one
woman’s journey to discovering the truth behind an abandoned
apartment and a family whose mysteries may be better left
When high-powered fine art agent Flora Sykes is called in to
assess objets d’art in a Paris apartment that has been
abandoned since WWII, she is skeptical at first—until she
discovers that under decades of dust the treasure trove of
paintings is myriad…and priceless. The powerful Vermeil
family to whom they belong is eager to learn more and asks
Flora to trace the history of each and every painting.
Despite a shocking announcement that has left her own family
reeling, Flora finds herself thrown into the rarified and
glamorous world of the Vermeils. But she soon realizes that
there is more to this project than first appears and as she
researches the provenance of their prize Renoir, she
uncovers a scandal surrounding not only the painting, but a
secret that goes to the very heart of the family itself. The
fallout will place Flora in the eye of a storm that carries
her from London to Vienna to the glittering coast of Provence.
Xavier Vermeil, the brusque scion of the family, is
determined to separate Flora from his family’s affairs in
spite of the powerful attraction that propels them to one
another. Just what are the secrets he is desperately trying
to hide? And what price is Flora willing to pay to uncover
the devastating truth…?
