The Middle East in the early 1900s... the anti-colonial feeling is high, and 16-year-old Julia Hamilton, who has persuaded her diplomat father to allow her to accompany him there, suddenly finds herself in the thick of things, surrounded by secrets and intrigue and not sure who to trust or what to believe... This is definitely the kind of book one could lose oneself in ? it is so tautly paced and vividly imagined, you'll find yourself eagerly reading on till the very end. Parade of Shadows is another triumph for this award-winning author.
