Summary

"Melbourne, September 1854: people from all over the world are arriving in the Victorian capital. Sylvia Hoveden, an independent and feisty English girl, has travelled to Melbourne to find her missing twin brother, feared to be in grave danger, perhaps even dead. Anje Otsoa, and undercover agent for the Governor of Esperance, has come to Melbourne to find the kidnapped French Count of Tremille. Are the two disappearances somehow related? Both Sylvia and Anje are about to be plunged into a nest of intrigue, conspiracy and danger far greater than they could have imagined. Because someone is waiting, watching ... and when that person is revealed, there's no telling what might happen..." -- BOOK JACKET.
