The Ghosts of Paris
A gripping story of secrets and intrigue set in postwar London and Paris. A search for a missing husband forces investigator and former war reporter Billie Walker to face the ghosts of her own painful past, and sets her on a collision course with an underground network of Nazis.
Coming June 7, 2022...
It’s 1947. The world continues to grapple with the fallout of the Second World War, and former war reporter Billie Walker is finding her feet as an investigator. When a wealthy client hires Billie and her assistant, Sam, to track down her missing husband, the trail leads back to London and Paris, where Billie’s own painful memories also lurk. Jack Rake, Billie’s wartime lover and, briefly, husband, is just one of the millions of people who went missing in Europe during the war. As clues about both men land in strange dead ends, danger seems to be lurking one step behind her. Is it this latest case, or is something even more terrible than a few painful memories following Billie around the City of Light . . .
“Just what I needed today—a blast of the escapist past.”
