In the fallout of one of history's bloodiest battles, a personal war is waged. . .
Paris in 1816 is reeling from the Battle of Waterloo, and relations between the British and French are uneasy at best. So it's hardly a surprise to British attaché and Intelligence Agent Malcolm Rannoch when he and his wife Suzanne, soon to give birth to their second child, become the target of violent threats. Malcolm is certain that the secrets of his past have caught up with him—but he's unaware that Suzanne has more than a few secrets of her own. . .
The Rannochs both served as spies throughout the Napoleonic Wars, Malcolm for the British and Suzanne for the Bonapartist French—and both could have left any number of enemies in their wake. But even for two seasoned agents, finding a would-be killer in a country where allegiances are tested and no one can be trusted may prove as impossible as escaping their history. . .

Once again Teresa Grant has made perfect use of the novella form, providing a story complete on its own but a perfect segue from her last novel to her next. Malcolm and Suzanne, fresh from the intigues of The Paris Affair set in post Waterloo Paris, await the birth of their second child, a poignant time given the circumstances of their son's birth. A rock thrown into their carriage - almost striking Suzanne - delivers a warning: You will pay for your crimes. But who? Malcolm? Suzanne? Both harbor secrets. Fans of the series will be glad to encounter Harry and Cordie, Geoff and Aline, Doro and Tallyrand. They all share some part in the story which also brings us two new characters for Malcolm and Suzanne to love. Fans enjoy! Newcomers, sample this as an intoduction to the riches of the series. Or better yet, buy them all.
Wait til she finishes the book and then buy it. I am very disappointed. I spent all this money for 84 pages. The short story is exactly what the overview of the book states it to be. I'll gladly update my review when she actually writes this as a book. Simone24
