Thick fog seeping off the Devon moor. The brooding ruins
of an alchemistâ€™s castle. And the carnival itself, whose
maze of tents and caravans hid the priceless Saxony
jewels â€“ and the identity of the carny who killed for
them. Preparing her first criminal case, Lexie Hudson was
glad of Australian roustabout Rick Mathesonâ€™s friendly
face â€“ frankly the place spooked her.
But Lexie wasnâ€™t too scared to pursue any and all leads,
and that worried Rick, working undercover for Scotland
Yard. His concern wasnâ€™t entirely professional â€“ he was
greatly attracted to the young American lawyer, who wasnâ€™t
experienced enough to know that the gravest threat to her
well-being was her burning desire to uncover the truth.
