But before she can give any more details, Stephanie Mailer mysteriously disappears, and Rosenberg and Scott are forced to confront the possibility that her suspicions might have been proved true.<br> <br> What happened to Stephanie Mailer?<br> <br> What did she know?<br> <br> And what really happened in Orphea all those years ago? <br> <br> TRANSLATED FROM THE FRENCH BY HOWARD CURTIS</p>
