An almost fatal shooting party also introduces Faro to the writer Imogen Crowe, destined to play an important role in his life. THE MISSING DUCHESS: An investigation into the mysterious and sinister disappearance of the Queen’s god-daughter Grand Duchess Amelie during a royal visit to Scotland, is fraught with intrigue and deadly peril.
