If Sidney Baron thought he could relax after the success that followed the discovery of the Boleyn Gold, he was wrong. Already rushed off their feet, a chance encounter with an American antiques dealer leads him and the team to drop everything and launch a quest for a document that could challenge what the world thinks it knows about regency England’s most famous novelist. But why do things go very wrong so quickly? What happens when a false press report makes the team consider who they can really trust? Most of all who is the mysterious stranger who insists on sabotaging their every move? Sidney, Ali and Gemma are back for a new adventure in a race against time to prevent a treasure trove from being destroyed by an unknown adversary. Can they get there first? Or will the Austen Secret be lost forever?
