Art student Clary Ashton can't imagine a more perfect spot to study painting than Paris in the spring of 1878, until she witnesses a body thrown into the Seine, the body of Liam Heaton, another art student with a mysterious background. What Clary thinks is murder becomes much more as Liam's secrets come to light, exposing the secrets of those she thought she knew.

Overview

Art student Clary Ashton can't imagine a more perfect spot to study painting than Paris in the spring of 1878, until she witnesses a body thrown into the Seine, the body of Liam Heaton, another art student with a mysterious background. What Clary thinks is murder becomes much more as Liam's secrets come to light, exposing the secrets of those she thought she knew.

Clary finds herself drawn into a world she didn't realize existed, one spanning both the murky underworld and the glittering salons of the city. And when she is caught between two dangerous men - a political extremist days away from a royal assassination, and the young intrepid British secret agent who is determined to stop him - Clary doesn't know who to trust. She does know that if she doesn't find the murderer, she may become a victim herself.
