Product Description

From the Back Cover

In France, a young man's heart misses a beat when the blue lights of a police car signal for him to pull his Mercedes off the autoroute. For inside the attache case on the passenger seat is a very special delivery bound for the Parisian headquarters of the world-renowned fashion house, Cazares, and for fashion doyenne Maria Cazares herself. And a similar, potentially lethal delivery, is about to disrupt the quiet of the English countryside.

In London, journalist Gini Hunter, newly returned from the war zones of Bosnia, is haunted by what she has seen. Knowing that her lover, Pascal Lamartine, remains there, she exists on the brink of breakdown, supported by her close friend, fashion editor Lindsay Drummond. Until the disappearance of a schoolgirl and the intervention of a new editor at her paper, Rowland McGuire, force her to do what she does best...follow a story.

The hunt for fifteen-year-old Mina Landis takes Gini from a Gloucestershire country house to Amsterdam, and then to Paris at the height of the fashion collections. There, she will encounter new and very different dangers, for she must deal with two men - one a potential killer, the other a potential lover.

Format: Paperback
This was highly entertaining to read and typically Sally Beauman in that it was unputdownable for most of it. However one point is Gini Hunter the most unbearable heroine ever created? I had to deduct one star due to her irritating whinging and inutterably annoying personality - and to be honest it would have been more had it not been for the presence of Lindsay and that fact that Beauman clearly saw sense making Lindsay the heroine of Sextet. I found Gini faintly difficult to cope with in Lovers and Liars but at least Pascal made up for it but if anything she's worse here. This probably makes it seem as though I hated the book, quite the contrary. It's just that this is one of the few books I liked despite the heroine and not because of her.

Unlike the previous reviewer, I liked Ginny. She is vulnerable and haunted, back in London after finding herself unable to cope with the horrors of Beirut and the death-wish of her now-husband, the French war photographer Pascal. Her feelings for both him and Rowland Maguire were realistic and detailed and I was drawn into the emotional feel of the book completely.

To keep you on your toes, the 'romance' element is balanced perfectly with the thriller plot of a man who kidnaps a girl and takes her to Paris - but what for and what are his ultimate plans? And what's the connection between him and the enigmatic fashion designers who rule the catwalks?

A brilliant, escapist read full of the excitement of the fashion and magazine industry, but with real characters who walk off the pages whether you like them or not.

A good easy holiday type read with a nice mixture of both thriller and romance. Although I'd worked out some of the connections and what might happen, there were enough twists to keep me reading the book to find out if I was correct. Some of the descriptions were a bit wordy, but maybe that's was because I wanted to find out what happened next - always the sign of a good read. I also liked all the main characters, Lindsay, Gini, Pascal and Rowland, and wasn't 100% sure who would end up with whom until the every end. There was something realistic about each of them that made me care what happened to them. Although not as polished as some of her later novels, all the hallmarks of a good read are there.

To be frank I struggled with this. I think it may have worked if it had been cut by about half - but as it stands it's way too long - and I did get sick of all those meaningful looks!
