By Robin Pilcher
A group of people are about to meet for the first time at the Edinburgh Festival. The events of this long, hot summer will both throw them together and tear them apart . . .
It's Edinburgh in August. A group of people, drawn to the city for the forthcoming Festival, meet for the first time, little knowing that the events of this long hot summer, and the arrival of Angelique Pascal, a talented and beautiful violinist, will throw their lives into turmoil.
Angelique Pascal is in Edinburgh to headline at the Festival's finale and her fiery spirit is already making waves. Tired of being controlled by her overbearing tutor, Albert, Angelique finds herself yearning for a moment's respite from both the constant touring and the restrictions of her celebrity status. But when events take a sinister turn and Angelique must flee in terror from all that she has known, she finds safety in the most unexpected place.
