Format: E Book
Source: Tribute Books
Series: The Neve & Egan Cases Book 2
Summary: When elderly client Doris Hargrave informs private investigator Alexandra Neve that her beloved antique ruby heart necklace has gone missing for the second time in a period of over sixty years, Alexandra knows this is no ordinary jewellery theft. The ruby heart is a family heirloom and the only thing that connects an ailing Mrs Hargrave to her parents, who were murdered during the Holocaust.
To solve the case, Alexandra and her business partner, blind history professor Ashford Egan, must sift through obscure Holocaust documents to find out the truth. It’s that way that they learn of a secret World War II-era love affair which could hold the key to all the answers they are looking for. Meanwhile, Egan is under immense pressure from the university to quit his private investigating business, and Alexandra is afraid that a man she trusts will leave her. Again.
When Alexandra begins to receive anonymous threats and her flat is vandalised, this all becomes personal. Knowing that there is someone out there to hurt her, Alexandra vows to find that elusive ruby heart if it’s the last thing she ever does.
This is the second book in The Neve & Egan cases. The first one is called Russian Dolls. This book can be read as a stand alone book though.
Alexandra and her partner Ashford Egan take on a case of finding a missing ruby heart pendant. It has been stolen before and is more than just a necklace.
There is a lot of history involved with Holocaust and a World War II-era love affair.
Alexandra and Egan find themselves caught up in things they have no business getting themselves into. They are always getting themselves into messy situations.
