Suspense | Mystery Historical
At her friend Ivy's behest, Lady Emily Ashton reluctantly
agrees to attend a house party at the country estate of
Lord Basil Fortescue, a man she finds as personally odious
as he is politically powerful. But if she was expecting
Lord Fortescue to be the greatest of her problems, she was
wrong. Her host has also included Kristiana von Lange
among the guests, an Austrian countess who had once been
linked romantically with Emily's fiancĂ©, Colin Hargreaves.
Both Lord Fortescue and the countess take great delight in
tormenting Emily, but petty malice turns deadly serious
when Lord Fortescue is found murdered, and his protĂ©gĂ©,
Robert Brandon - Ivyâ€™s husband - is arrested for the crime.
Emilyâ€™s efforts to clear Robertâ€™s name take her to Vienna.
Glittering balls, sordid back streets, chic cafes, and even
the Imperial palace yield fragmentary clues, but not until
Emily engages a notorious anarchist in a game of wits does
the shocking truth begin to emerge: The price of
exonerating Robert can only be paid by placing Colin in
deadly peril. And the one way Emily can ensure his safety
is to strike an unthinkable bargain with her nemesis, the
Countess von Lange.
