So why is she jeapordizing everything for a fling with her sous chef, a mysterious twenty-eight-year-old Algerian man named Hassan?
Marva begins to ask herself the same question when she returns from vacation to find that Hassan is missing, and that he is the main suspect in the investigation into the bombing of a building in Paris that has left one man dead. Then Marva disappears, leaving her bewildered daughter and husband to put the pieces of the puzzle together.
Once again, Jake Lamar delivers a riveting thriller rich with the romance, intrigue and international flavor of the City of Light.
