Zusatztext
“This is a story with twists and turns aplenty. The ending is the biggest twist of all.”—St. Louis Post-Dispatch

“When a law flies in the face of moral justice, can a person be condemned for defying it—even to the point of murder? Anne Perry argues the issue with uncommon eloquence.”—The New York Times Book Review

“No one is better known for portraying Victorian life and social mores.”—The Denver Post

“Perry carries the suspense right into the last few pages.”—The Christian Science Monitor
 
“Anne Perry is [a] master of crime fiction who rarely fails to deliver a strong story and a colorful cast of characters.”—Baltimore Sun

Informationen zum Autor
Anne Perry is the bestselling author of two acclaimed series set in Victorian England: the William Monk novels, including Blind Justice and A Sunless Sea, the Charlotte and Thomas Pitt novels, including Death on Blackheath and Midnight at Marble Arch. She is also the author of a series of five World War I novels, as well as eleven holiday novels, most recently A New York Christmas, and a historical novel, The Sheen on the Silk, set in the Ottoman Empire.

Zusammenfassung
A young bridegroom enlists private investigator William Monk to track down his fiancée, Miriam Gardiner, who disappeared suddenly from a party at a luxurious Bayswater mansion. Monk soon finds the coach in which Miriam fled and, nearby, the murdered body of the coachman, but there is no trace of the young passenger. What strange compulsion could have driven the beautiful widow to abandon the prospect of a loving marriage and financial abundance? Monk and clever nurse Hester Latterly, themselves now newlyweds, desperately pursue the elusive truth—and an unknown killer whose malign brilliance they have scarcely begun to fathom.
