Monk, the dark and brooding hero . . .  infuses this luxuriantly detailed series with its romantic soul."--The New York Times Book Review.When Countess Zorah Rostova asks London barrister Sir Oliver Rathbone to defend her against a charge of slander, he is astonished to find himself accepting. For, without a shred of evidence, the countess insists that the prince of her small German principality was murdered by his wife, the woman who was responsible for his exile twenty years before.
