Description
A spellbinding novel from the internationally bestselling author

A Secret Worth Dying For.

Jac L'Etoile is plunged into a world she thought she'd left behind when her brother, coheir to their father's storied French perfumery, makes an earthshattering discovery in the family archives, and then suddenly goes missing--leaving a dead body in his wake. In Paris to investigate his disappearance, Jac becomes haunted by the legend of the House of L'Etoile. If there is an ancient perfume developed in Cleopatra's time that holds the power to unlock memories of past lives, possessing it is not only worth living for...it's worth killing for, too.

Fusing history, passion, and suspense in an intoxicating web that moves from Cleopatra's Egypt and the terrors of revolutionary France to Tibet's battle with China and the glamour of modern-day Paris, this marvelous, spellbinding novel comes to life as richly as our most wildly imagined dreams.
