Whilst we learn of the final chapter of their lives from the opening part of book there is still, uncertainty as to Oz Blackstone’s motives.
But Primavera’s mind is taken off Oz when Auntie Ade arrives unexpectedly and asks for Primavera’s help in locating her son Frank, who seems to have disappeared. The search takes Primavera to Seville where she becomes privy to a shady project involving millions. And then on a nightmare cat and mouse game across Spain as she endeavours to keep out of the clutches of baddies. But who exactly are the bad guys?
It’s an enjoyable
mystery, with an unexpected ending.
