UK Publication Date

Imogen Robertson's break-out novel - a deep, dark and opulent tale of Belle poque Paris, and the secrets and dangers hidden beneath its luxurious facade.

Maud Heighton came to Lafond's famous Acadmie to paint, and to flee the constraints of her small English town. It took all her courage to escape, but Paris eats money. While her fellow students enjoy the dazzling joys of the Belle poque, Maud slips into poverty. Quietly starving, and dreading another cold Paris winter, Maud takes a job as companion to young, beautiful Sylvie Morel. But Sylvie has a secret: an addiction to opium. As Maud is drawn into the Morels' world of elegant luxury, their secrets become hers. Before the New Year arrives, a greater deception will plunge her into the darkness that waits beneath this glittering city of light.
