How dangerous can breaking your promise be?

London, June, 1953.

It’s Coronation Day and among the crowd gathered at Westminster Abbey Nancy Nicholson meets the man of her dreams, someone she can truly love – or so she believes. After years of loneliness, romance has finally arrived.

But there’s mystery surrounding Philip March and it’s not long before the questions begin. Why is Nancy never invited to his apartment? Why does she never meet his friends? How has he managed to beguile her parents? And does he truly care for Nancy, or is his love no more than a means to control?

Amid growing doubts, Nancy walks away - and her life becomes a nightmare of suspense. Stalked day and night, nowhere is safe. Fear looms at her from every corner. Terror follows her home. There is no-one she can trust. No-one to help.

How dangerous can breaking your promise be? Nancy is about to find out.

See what reviewers have to say about the prequel to this bestselling mystery suspense series:

The story is a roller-coaster of a read, with plenty of tension and suspense.

Merryn's characters are real and she always sets the scene beautifully: in this case Britain in the early 1950s.

The social constraints of the 1950s are keenly observed and add much to this well-written story. 

As Philip’s menacing behaviour worsens, you hope Nancy will find the strength to face up to the reality of her situation. But in doing so, is she leaping from one disastrous situation into another?

A superb prequel to Venetian Vendetta.
