From the No. 1 bestselling author of THE AMERICAN BOY comes
a brilliant new historical thriller set during the French
Paris, 1792. Terror reigns as the city writhes in the grip
of revolution. The streets run with blood as thousands lose
their heads to the guillotine. Edward Savill, working in
London as agent for a wealthy American, receives word that
his estranged wife Augusta has been killed in France. She
leaves behind ten-year-old Charles, who is brought to
England to Charnwood Court, a house in the country leased by
a group of Ã©migrÃ© refugees.
Savill is sent to retrieve the boy, though it proves easier
to reach Charnwood than to leave. And only when Savill
arrives there does he discover that Charles is mute. The boy
has witnessed horrors beyond his years, but what terrible
secret haunts him so deeply that he is unable to utter a word?
