"Casa Madrone opens on an elegant Fifth Avenue sitting room in the early spring of 1911. The room is still lovely, though bereft of the priceless art that once graced its walls. The Bookever fortune is gone, and Mallory Bookever has been supremely lucky in her marriage proposal from Richard Welbeck of San Francisco, for he is handsome, well-bred, and very rich. Then comes the news of Richard's accident and the request that the wedding take place on the West Coast. From that moment on, a deadly shadow follows the young bride, as someone tries desperately to prevent the marriage, someone who would not hesitate to murder."; Ex-Library; 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall
