From the author of Multiple Exposure, an ´´assured tale of love, loss, and secret agendas´´ (Publishers Weekly), comes the second novel in the thrilling Sophie Medina series, following a photojournalist as she races to find an international treasure before a murderer finds her. When freelance photojournalist Sophie Medina finds Brother Kevin Boyle, a Franciscan friar and controversial environmentalist, dead in the magnificent gardens of a Washington, DC, monastery, she is sure her friend was murdered.

Beginning with a key that leads to a priceless original 17th-century encyclopedia of plants, Sophie leaps into an international treasure hunt, following a trail that begins in the US Capitol and eventually leads to London and the English countryside. Before long Sophie suspects Kevin´s murderer may have been someone who knew him well. With time running out and a suspect list that includes the world´s leading botanical experts and political royalty from both sides of the Atlantic, can Sophie solve the 200-year-old mystery before Kevin´s killer finds her?

When Adeline Bertrand-Verdon, the haughty, conniving president of the Proust Association, is murdered, Inspector Jean-Pierre Foucheroux is called on to lead the investigation. Soon Inspector Foucheroux is overwhelmed by a seemingly endless list of suspects: from her assistant to her colleagues, her fiancé to her lover, almost everyone Adeline knew had motive to kill her. Meanwhile, Gisele Dambert, the beautiful assistant with the royal-blue eyes and more than a hint of mystery, is on her own search for the lost Proust notes that would allow her to finally enter the glittering world of the literary elite. This clever satirical novel presents a dazzling array of sharp, unscrupulous professors and scholars in the image-obsessed world of academia. An assortment of suspects - the professor who plagiarizes his students´ work, the manipulative director - bring intrigue and drama to the novel. Suspense and withering commentary on the morally questionable intellectual elite combine to form a clever mix of whodunit and satire. ungekürzt. Language: English. Narrator: Liisa Ivary.
