"The forthcoming 20th anniversary reunion of the cast of the classic film Tristan and Isolde in the U.K. provides the backdrop for Linnéa’s extravagantly romantic first in a new movie mystery series...Skillfully interwoven flashbacks detail the filming and the professional and personal jealousies as well as emotional entanglements that roiled the cast." --Publisher's Weekly
"Linnea delivers a romantic suspense novel in which the fatal triangle that ensnared Tristan, Isolde and King Mark is reflected in that which ensnare the three movie stars, making the two tragedies seem equally inevitable." --Alfred Hitchcock Mystery Magazine
