Abstract:

Forty years ago, London society was riveted by the shooting death of Lord Sherwin, murdered during a hunt ball at his lavish country estate. Although suspicion fell on Sherwin's beautiful wife, Laura, the case remained unsolved. Now free-lance television researcher Alex Tanner has a chance to land her first big scoop after a chance encounter with the aging Miss Potter, retired governess to the Sherwin children and guest at the fateful ball. But the retired governess will.

Only tell her story if Alex does her a favor in return: find the missing Zara Mayfield, eighteen-year-old granddaughter of Lord Sherwin. Desperate to get the story, Alex reluctantly agrees, but soon begins to doubt the usefulness of her source. Is Miss Potter merely a lonely old lady delighted to have an audience for her fantasies at last? But as the parallel investigations into Zara's disappearance and Sherwin's murder continue, Miss Potter reveals unexpected depths.

While Alex is poised to uncover a terrible secret kept hidden for a generation, and to unmask a killer desperate to keep the truth under wraps.
