From the fascinating sparkle of priceless antique jewels to the terrifying shadows of murderous madness, Into the Darkness weaves a deliciously intricate web of romance, suspense, and intrigue -- hallmarks of Barbara Michaels' best-selling magic.
When Daniel Mignot, the roguish and mysterious founder of a majestic jewelry empire, dies after a sudden short illness, his granddaughter, Meg Venturi, is drawn back to Seldon -- the small New England town she ran from so many years ago. Expecting only to pay her respects and to act as a pillar of strength to her fragile Gran, Meg receives the shock of her life when she learns her beloved grandfather has left her the local antique jewelry store that was his greatest joy. With this inheritance comes another, even more startling, legacy as Meg is forced into a business partnership with the man Daniel Mignot selected -- the man half the town whispers was responsible for the old millionaire's death.
Amidst rich blood-red Burmese rubies, shimmering baroque pearls of a deathlike pallor, and a delicate gold ring whose foreboding message reads Here I lie and wait for you, Meg is haunted by a mysterious and increasingly dangerous chain of events. And when shoe discovers a legacy of dark revelations older and more intriguing than the glittering jewels they surround, Meg must wage a battle of wits to protect something even more precious -- her very life...
Into the Darkness -- where the secrets of the past are as inescapable as the promise of the future is glorious storytelling from America's mistress of romantic suspense.
