Jim Taylor, consulting detective, gambler, bodyguard, writer and
friend of Sally Lockhart, has been looking for Adelaide Bevan for a long
time. He last saw her as a poor penniless waif disappearing into the smoky
mists of London. So imagine his surprise when he does find her at last - a
beautiful young woman and in the company of no less a personage than Prince
Rudolf of Eschtenburg, heir to the throne of Razkavia.
Razkavia is a tiny independant kingdom at the heart of Europe with high
mountains and dark forests. The legend says that while the Red Eagle flag
flies above the Rock of Eschtenburg, Razkavia will be free. But dark forces
are circling and the Prince and Adelaide and the kingdom itself are in
peril. Adelaide, Jim and their new friend Becky soon find themselves
travelling to Razkavia - into the heart of the danger.
