Content descriptions

Summary, etc.: "A London crowd awaits the trial of Victoria Lamartine, suspected for the murder of her former lover. Lamartine - who years ago escaped from the Gestapo - is set to meet her end at the gallows. One final opportunity remains: solicitor Nap Rumbold is called to replace the defence counsel, granting an eight-day reprieve. Without any time to spare, Rumbold crosses the Channel to trace the roots of the crime back into the war-torn past. Expertly combining authentic courtroom drama at the Old Bailey with a perilous quest for evidence across France, Gilbert's novel is an unorthodox marvel of the mystery genre"--
