A cohort from their espionage days, Francisco Doro, notifies Charles and Melanie that he wants to meet them. They rendezvous only to have a sniper kill Francisco and wound Charles. Managing to escape this trap, the duo remains caught in the middle of deadly intrigue involving their past and his family.

Beneath THE SILENT MOON is a tremendous Regency suspense thriller that contains some romance elements, but the exhilarating story line focuses on the intrigue. The return of the Frasers in a prequel (see DAUGHTER OF THE GAME) will delight readers as the couple retains their mystery and charm though more doubts about their relationship exists this time then in last year's novel. Tracy Grant provides richly textured historical intrigue that brings to life London just after the Napoleonic Wars.
