Requirements: ePUB Reader , 433 KB
Overview: 1793, and Europe is in turmoil. All around the coast of Britain, inhabitants fear invasion by the savage new French revolutionary regime, and nowhere more so than on the Isle of Wight. The islanders live in constant fear of lawless smugglers with links to France. It is no wonder then that when a series of fatal “accidents” befall the men in Saxborough family, the spirited, wealthy and independent Drusilla begins to suspect foul play.
She sets out to investigate and soon finds her own life is in danger. Has she stumbled on a murder plot, a ring of ruthless smugglers – or something even more sinister that involves the security of the country? Drusilla knows that someone very close to her is not to be trusted: it it may be her lifelong friend, Giles Saxborough, who unexpectedly inherits the estates he has always loved, it may be Giles’s uncle Vincent, mysteriously returned from the dead – or it may be the enigmatic Radleigh Reevers, whose intentions towards her are very far from clear.
