A lifetime ago, Erika Rosenthal and her husband, David, fled
to England to escape the Nazis—which is all Scotland Yard
Detective Inspector Gemma James truly knows about her
secretive friend's past. But Erika needs Gemma's help now. A
family heirloom, stolen during their flight, is being sold
at a prestigious London auction house. Who has had it all
these years? And was Erika's husband's death more sinister
than it appeared?
Hidden somewhere in the shadowy, exclusive world of London's
monied society are answers to these questions, and to a
shocking new murder—one that kicks the enquiries into high
gear and brings Detective Superintendent Duncan Kincaid,
Gemma's partner and colleague, into the case. Their
investigation could exact justice for Erika, and lead them
both to shocking revelations and repercussions that echo
across the years.
