A strange terror coiled in the shadows behind the brooding elegance of the huge chateau. It lay there like some dark and twisted thing -- waiting, watching, ready to strike. Was it only chance encounter than had brought Linda Martin to Chateau Valmy? Or was it something planned? The lovely young English governess did not know. She only knew something was wrong and that she was afraid. Now she could not even trust the man she loved. For Raoul Valmy was one of them -- linked by blood and name to the dark secrets of the Valmy past.
"A wonderful hue and cry story . . . a Mona Lisa tale that beckons you on while suspense builds up." --Boston Herald

All of Mary Stewart's novels of romantic suspense are so wonderful that it's hard sometimes to pick out specific comments or insights on each book--you should just read them all! I will say that the suspense in Nine Coaches Waiting is particularly terrific because you can never trust any of the characters and aren't quite sure who the villain is until it's almost too late. Don't miss it! Shauna Summers, Senior EditorAbout the Author:
