Twenty years ago, Beryl Tavistock’s parents, both MI6 agents, were killed in Paris, and the government covered up the evidence. Now, Beryl learns of the scandalous circumstances surrounding their deaths and decides to follow in their footsteps to find the truth. Her brother, Jordan, goes along to protect her and ends up in prison as a murder suspect, forcing Beryl to put her life in the hands of ex-CIA agent Richard Wolf as they try to find surviving witnesses and uncover long-hidden evidence to clear her parents of treason and murder. Someone from the Tavistocks’ past doesn’t want Beryl to succeed and will do whatever it takes to stop her. This book reprints in hardcover one of Gerritsen’s older, stand-alone romantic suspense novels, originally published in 1994. Beryl is not a weak character, but she does depend a lot on Richard. Readers who enjoy such authors as Mary Stewart, Victoria Holt, and Helen MacInnes will enjoy this novel, which has an old-fashioned feel reminiscent of their books, including discreet sex scenes. --Kat Kan
