By the bestselling author of The Far Pavilions, a superb, classic crime fiction novel from the author described as "outdoing Agatha Christie in palming the ace"
Miranda Brand was uneasy even before the train left to take her to stay with her army cousin in divided Berlin. Then a story of a missing fortune in war-looted diamonds, told to pass the time on the journey, brings back nightmares of her past. And causes murder.
This is dazzling entertainment from a master of suspense.
