From the author of
the “lively and spirited” (Providence Journal) Wine Country Mysteries
comes the first in a new series featuring a savvy female photographer whose
husband’s abduction embroils her in the world of international espionage and
lost Romanov art treasures.
When photojournalist Sophie Medina returns to London from an
overseas assignment, she discovers that her husband Nick, a geologist and
covert CIA operative, has been abducted. Three months later she is shocked when
a friend in the British government says Nick was spotted in Moscow and is now not
only a suspect in his boss’ murder but also potentially involved in illicit
Russian oil deals. With her every move now closely watched, Sophie moves to
Washington, DC, to be with family and friends.
There Sophie is drawn deeper into Nick’s shadowy world.
While photographing an exhibit of two never-before-seen Fabergé imperial eggs
at the National Gallery of Art, Sophie is confronted by a Russian oil tycoon,
implicating her former husband. On the run from Nick’s enemies, Sophie plays a
high-stakes game of Russian roulette as she tries to determine friend from foe
and prove her husband’s innocence.
Weaving together political intrigue, art history, and
espionage, this fast-paced story marks the start of a promising new series.
