A suspense-packed thriller.
An unexplained death, a bundle of old letters, a wall of silence - incentive enough for Chantal Lawrence to launch into some private investigating. How did her mother, Madeleine, come to fall to her death seventeen years ago? And why is the incident still wrapped in secrecy?
A story for those who like mystery mixed with romance.
During a meeting with her lawyer, twenty-one year old Chantal Lawrence is surprised to learn that she has been left a fortune by her French mother, Madeleine, who died seventeen years earlier in unexplained circumstances.
A visit to the Dordogne farmhouse where her mother grew up intrigues Chantal, and when she comes across a bundle of old letters addressed to Madeleine from someone called Veronique, she goes against the wishes of those around her and embarks on a quest to contact the sender.
Her hunt propels her into a wild goose-chase across Paris and, although impeded by the arrival of her father from London and her former boyfriend from Canada, she persists in her search for Veronique. Despite putting herself in danger, Chantal won't rest until she has solved the mystery.
