the beautiful and happy bride-to-be, vanishes. One moment she was waving

if the earth had swallowed her up.
A nightmare of suspicions follows, questions with no answers – and at the centre
of a tangled web of lies stands the mysterious and wealthy man that was to have
been Anneli’s husband.
Chief inspector Christer Wick of the Stockholm Crime Squad investigates and in
what turns out to be a double murder case the fragrant lily-of-the-valley bouquet is
a tantilising and vital clue.
