A new vintage mystery by Elizabeth Edmondson.
From fog-bound London to sun-drenched France…
1947. Exasperated by her tyrannical family, Vicky escapes from rationing and austerity Britain and flees to the south of France.
But she’s not there just for the glorious food, wine and sunshine: she has an inheritance to claim, and a mystery to solve.
Can she find her wartime husband, Philippe d’Icère? Is he alive or dead? A hero or a traitor? An imposter, or a true Frenchman?
Do the answers lie in the Languedoc village of St Aphrodise, where danger lurks in the ancient streets?
How can she be sure who’s a loyal friend and who a bitter enemy?
Vicky seems destined to fail—or will she, in the end, find out the truth about Philippe?
