IN THE SECRET CITY by Lisa DeAngelis

£6.00

In 1993, when elderly Humbert Farquardt, III is found murdered, suspicion falls on his young, beautiful, twice widowed wife, whose only hope to prove her innocence lies with the lawyer who defended her at her last murder trial. But “many events in the womb of time” must be revealed before the curtain falls on this comedy thriller leading back to an incident that occurred in Nazi-occupied Naples in 1943.
