Dominion has devised a weapon that can kill everyone in a room except the people they want to save. When a Paris showgirl witnesses its power first hand, she calls on Eleanora Rosewood for aid.
For Eleanora the return to the city of love stirs up memories of the man she lost – and brings her into contact with some unexpected echoes of that great romance.
