‘John Rae is a powerful writer’ – Sunday Times
For Emily, the prospect of a cultural holiday in Leningrad seems rather dull, until an adventure presents itself the moment she and her family step off the plane at Leningrad airport.
For who is the mysterious Mrs Hannay accompanying them on their tour? And why was her photograph kept by the authorities at Leningrad Airport?
And what is the connection between Mrs Hannay, the Dubinsky family and the Leonardo da Vinci in the Hermitage Museum?
Emily feels sure she knows the answer to the mystery and, together with her sister Alyce, is determined to act.
