Publisher's Summary

1995, London. When Sir James Harrison, one the greatest actors of his generation, passes away at the age of 95 he leaves behind not just a heartbroken family but also a secret so shocking, so devastating that it could rock the English establishment to its core. 

Joanna Haslam is an ambitious young journalist assigned to cover the legendary actor's funeral. The great and the good of the celebrity world are there. But Joanna stumbles on something dark beneath the glamour: the mention of a letter James Harrison has left behind, the contents of which others have been desperate to conceal for over 70 years. 

As she peels back the veil of lies that has shrouded the secret, she realizes that there are other forces attempting to prevent her from discovering the truth. And they'll stop at nothing to reach the letter before she does.

Not sure what the big secret was

So complicated and far fetched. I can’t even work out what the big secret was.

Intriguing but left me feeling uncomfortable.

I normally love reading Lucinda Riley’s novels but this departure from her usual genre of historical fiction into thriller mode and the way it evolved and ended didn’t sit well with me.
Although this story was interesting in a way what I like about Lucinda’s other story writing is learning about important historical events and other cultures. This one featured a lot of drinking in English pubs, drinking cups of tea, too many people being killed and ultimately wasn’t very believable.

Definitely a light read

A light read which I found moderately entertaining after recent substantial and very good books read. Started well but ended totally implausibly. Felt it could have ended earlier in several places. Would not recommend to anyone wanting a book with substance but did make me laugh at some of its more ridiculous moments.

A wonderful book

As with all of Lucinda Riley's books this was no exception - I loved it. It was a great read. I think I have just about read all of her books. This story held my attention from start to finish - intrigue, suspense, history and romance. Highly recommend.
