Set against the lush, exotic European colonial outposts of
the 1920s, New York Times bestselling author Deanna Raybourn
delivers the captivating tale of one woman who embarks upon
a journey to see the world-and ends up finding intrigue,
danger and a love beyond all reason.
Famed aviatrix Evangeline Starke never expected to see her
husband, adventurer Gabriel Starke, ever again. They had
been a golden couple, enjoying a whirlwind courtship amid
the backdrop of a glittering social set in prewar London
until his sudden death with the sinking of the Lusitania.
Five years later, beginning to embrace life again, Evie
embarks upon a flight around the world, collecting fame and
admirers along the way. In the midst of her triumphant tour,
she is shocked to receive a mysterious-and recent-photograph
of Gabriel, which brings her ambitious stunt to a screeching

at nothing to acquire it-even murder. Leaving the jewelled
city behind, Evie sets off across the punishing sands of the
desert to unearth the truth of Gabriel's disappearance and
retrieve a relic straight from the pages of history.
Along the way, Evie must come to terms with the deception
that parted her from Gabriel and the passion that will
change her destiny foreverÂ¦.
