England – 1815
Finlay has returned home after the war to live with his brother at Trestain Manor. But now Finlay has been asked to return to Spain on a mission to find El Fantasma, a.k.a. The Ghost, and get him out of Spain. Although no one knows what he looks like, El Fantasma is part of a group of people rebelling at what the government wants repressed. When Finlay recalls that Isabella claimed to know him, he decides to travel to Spain to ask for her help in locating him. He will pose as a wine merchant looking to purchase a large amount of wine and meet with Isabella’s brother who owns a large winery.
When Finlay and Isabella meet again, they try to act like they don’t know each other. When they get a chance for a private talk, Finlay tells her that he must find El Fantasma and help him escape the country. But when she finally tells him the identity of this person and that she has been a part of the rebels, Finlay is shocked but intent on helping the cause of the rebels. Thus ensues a daring escape as they flee to save themselves.
This was a story full of intrigue. The author’s descriptions of the area and the trials of the people who experienced the war are quite vivid.
