Vanessa March never thought to look for her missing husband in Vienna -- until she saw him in a newsreel shot there at the scene of a deadly fire. But her hunt for answers only leads to more sinister questions in a mysterious world of beautiful horses.

And what waits for Vanessa in the shadows is more terrifying than anything she has ever encountered.


Not her best work, but a fun read nonetheless.  More a straight up mystery than romantic suspense, and while the plot villain was obvious, Stewart at least had some fun misleading the reader about the plot itself.

Aside:  I bought this years ago at a FOTL sale for a dollar; when I finished reading it, I saw that it was published and printed 3 blocks from where I live now.  On its site now sits a ‘home improvement store’ – Bunnings, the Aussie answer to Home Depot.  A place I spit and swear about every time I have to visit.  Now, it seems, I have even more reason to dislike it – I’d rather the book publishers were still there.
