When her first guest, Dr. Norman Pickwell, is murdered rumors circulate that the villa is cursed. Meanwhile Matthias Jones is on the trail of a prototype cipher machine. He suspects that Pickwell had the device, but now Pickwell is dead and the machine has vanished. When Matthias’s investigation leads him to Amalie’s front door, the attraction between them is intense — but she knows it is also dangerous. Amalie and Matthias must decide if they can trust each other and the passion that binds them, because time is running out.
