Description

A thrilling tale of adventure and deception set in 1950s Austria, from the queen of romantic suspense and author of Madam, Will You Talk?

‘This zestful romantic adventure grips, amuses, frightens and delights’ Sunday Telegraph

Vanessa March’s husband Lewis is meant to be on a business trip in Stockholm. So why does he briefly appear in newsreel footage of a fire at a circus in Vienna, with his arm around another woman? Vanessa flies to Austria to find her husband – and inadvertently becomes involved in a mystery surrounding the famous dancing stallions of Austria’s Spanish Riding School . . .
