In The Orchid Affair, Willig introduces her strongest
Laura Grey, a veteran governess, joins the
Selwick Spy School expecting to find elaborate disguises and
thrilling exploits in service to the spy known as the Pink

serving as governess for the children of Andre Jaouen,
right-hand man to Bonaparte's minister of police. Jaouen and
his arch rival, Gaston Delaroche, are investigating a
suspected Royalist plot to unseat Bonaparte, and Laura's
mission is to report any suspicious findings.
first the job is as lively as Latin textbooks and knitting,
but Laura begins to notice strange behavior from
Jaouen-secret meetings and odd comings and goings. As Laura
edges herself closer to her employer, she makes a shocking
discovery and is surprised to learn that she has far more in
common with Jaouen than she originally thought...
their plots begin to unravel, Laura and Jaouen are forced on
the run with the children, and with the help of the Pink
Carnation they escape to the countryside, traveling as
husband and wife. But Delaroche will stop at nothing to take
down his nemesis. With his men hot on their trail, can Laura
and Jaouen seal the fate of Europe before it's too late?
