Wagons rolling, flags furling, horns blaring, the circus comes to town! Children chase the wagons, daring for a glimpse of exotic wild creatures. The big cats roar, sending shivers through the crowd, but they edge closer, demanding to be scared, knowing they are safe. And then a skeleton is found in a bygone relic. Is anyone safe?
Grace Marsden fights the lure of a decades old mystery surrounding a circus wagon, a phantom lion, and human bones uncovered at a local zoo. But when a dead woman sends her a letter and a dead man ends up in her neighbors yard, she can't ignore the lion tamer and his tale. Legend, fact, or fantasy? Grace needs to find out fast before she becomes his current prey.
