The boulevards of Paris, Cannes, Monte Carlo – perhaps in their glamour Sylvia could forget Johnny… forget that he no longer wanted to marry her. But Sylvia didn’t know when she left London that she was about to be plunged into a ring of jewel thieves, that handsome, romantic Henri was a criminal mastermind, and that Johnny would turn up in Dijon with
