In Volume 3 of The Straits Quartet, young, beautiful and wealthy widow Charlotte Macleod leaves Batavia in the 1850s and returns to Singapore for the English education of her two young sons. She is determined not to be drawn back into a secret affair with Zhen, the married Chinese merchant, triad-member and man she loves who is, unbeknownst to him, the father of her eldest son, Alex. Charlotte is convinced she can find happiness in a respectable marriage with the attractive but reticent Captain Maitland. But when murder and death strike, Singapore erupts in the violence of triad wars and Zhen's growing affection for Alex gives cause for alarm, she must make some hard decisions, for her children and herself.

Dawn Farnham is the author of The Red Thread, The Shallow Seas, The Hills of Singapore and The English Concubine (which comprise The Straits Quartet, a bestselling series of historical romance set in 19th-century Singapore), A Crowd of Twisted Things, a novel set in 1950 Singapore, as well as numerous short stories, plays and children'...
