'Leda Grey's world is utterly beguiling' THE TIMES Book of the Month

When journalist Ed Peters unearths a dusty old photograph of the alluring and reclusive silent-film actress Leda Grey he is instantly enchanted.

He discovers Leda is still living, alone in a decaying cliff-top house by the sea. And there, after a fifty-year silence, she's finally ready to share her incredible story.

It is the tale She tells of a volatile love affair, of obsession and jealousy, and the darkly glamorous world of early cinema.

It is a story of She tells of a world filled with secrets and lies, and of a past far more haunting than any of the silent films that Leda Grey once starred in.

A bewitching novel about an enigmatic silent film actress, and the volatile love affair that left her a recluse for over half a century - for fans of Sarah Waters and Tracy Chevalier.

'A richly evocative story, brimming with intrigue and suspense' M.L. Stedman, author of THE LIGHT BETWEEN OCEANS
