Doctor Jonathan Ransom thought he knew everything about his wife Emma until she was killed in a tragic skiing accident in the Swiss Alps. They had been married for eight years, eight blissful years in which they had travelled the world together. But the day after her death a mysterious letter addressed to her arrives at their hotel. When he opens it, his beliefs begin to unravel -- fast. .

In the envelope is a railway baggage check to a suitcase that reveals an Emma far removed from the down-to-earth nurse who has been his constant and loyal companion all those years. In it he discovers the clues to a double life. Was she having an affair? When is your wife not your wife? And when she is not your wife, who is she?

The answers begin right outside the train station where two policeman are waiting - to kill him. There are more answers as Jonathan escapes and the action sweeps him through Switzerland on a quest to discover the truth abut Emma. He is pursued by ruthless killers, entangled in an international conspiracy that touches all the world's Security Services and which will end in a denouement which is as breathtaking as it is totally unexpected.


  • At last an epic eBook

    By 5cottie
    This book is SO well written with just the right balance of drama, suspense and eloquent english, even though I suspect from the many minor and surprisingly appropriate Americanisms that he is indeed American. The plot is almost believable and the reader is kept in suspense in the true tradition of the greatest writers of this genre. The Characters are beautifully brought to life and at no time are references corny or chiched. One is truly drawn into the plot and enthralled without any element of predictability. I have been searching for an eBook which would hold my interest and belief and I am please to say that I have found a writer and book to compare to Fredrick Forsyth's early epics. My only criticism might be that ending seemed to come too quickly and the plot would have been wholly believable had there been some explanation of the resulting cover up and implications of the outrageous nature of the intrigues acted out within the story. A Prologue was no where near enough to satisfy this reader. Hence my comment "almost believable" unlike for instance the "Day of the Jackal" which had that absolute scent of a true story.
