Nineteen-year-old Minou Joubert receives an anonymous letter at her father’s bookshop. Sealed with a distinctive family crest, it contains just five words: SHE KNOWS THAT YOU LIVE.

A thrilling adventure, and a heart-breaking love story, Europe awaits in The Burning Chambers. A historical novel of excitement, conspiracy and danger like no other . . .
