Publisher's Summary

Now that peace reigns in Europe and Napoleon has been exiled to the island of Elba, Lady Arianna and her husband, the earl of Saybrook, are determined to put government sleuthing aside. But the head of British security has other ideas....

Rumors are rife that Napoleon may be plotting to take back the French throne and plunge the continent into another war. So when Saybrook learns that his Spanish cousin has gone missing on the island under mysterious circumstances, he and Arianna feel they have no choice but to undertake a secret mission to Elba for the government and unravel the serpentine tangle of truth and lies.   

Friend or foe? From the start, they find themselves up against treachery and deceptions. And for Arianna, things become even more difficult when she encounters ghosts from her past, forcing her to make fundamental choices about love, loyalty, family, and friendship. Once on Elba, she and Saybrook - along with some unexpected allies - must match wits with a deadly enemy and the great Napoleon himself. And with the clock ticking, all the last-minute machinations come down to a question of luck....

The battle fought before Waterloo

Treachery abounds as Lord & Lady Saybrook struggle to keep Napoleon from escaping his toy kingdom of Elba.
Ms Penrose again manages to weave a great story with compelling characterization. The central love story is believable and touching. One complaint : the narrator does a great job drawing us into her tale but her use of regional accents is a disaster

Every book is a page turner from beginning to end

From the moment you start to listen, the thrill and excitement starts! I can not recommend this series enough with drama, romance, mystery and murder plots abound. You can never work out the end, but just feel gutted to know they’ve ended! Please please release the rest of this series on Audio and let Mary Sarah bring more thrilling characters to life, from Andrea penrose’s writing! Pleeeaaasse!! ;-)
