The middle portion of the book seems mainly about Juliana trying to identify who the Panther really is but also trying to trick her husband into annulling their marriage whilst retaining ownership of the house and her jewels. She spends time with her friends, several historical characters such as F Scott Fitzgerald, Picasso and others, all the time falling in love with her nighttime visitor, the Panther. The book builds to a climax as Juliana and the Panther work together to ruin DeRohan whilst Juliana still tries to find out who he is. The final unveiling wasn't a complete surprise to me but was still excellently written and the story showed how both Juliana and the Panther had grown and their characters had changed during the course of the story.
This was always an enjoyable read and the setting, amongst the rich in the Riviera in the 1920s, added a great deal of interest. Juliana, although sometimes rather self-absorbed, was a good female lead and the mysterious nature of the Panther was appealing. This is a good read and I look forward to more from this author.

After Dominic shoots her lover, Jules runs away; taking refuge amidst artists, authors, and bohemians in the French Riviera's Cote d'Azur. The notorious cat burglar Panther enters her home through a window, but she catches him. She believes he is one man who can eliminate Dominic before he finds her. However, he demands remittance staring with her heart and ending with her soul. As she falls in love, Jules is unaware that the Panther is the one person who knows something about her that if revealed will destroy her.
This engaging historical thriller grips readers from the onset as a desperate Jules wonders if she jumped from the frying pan into the fire when she chose the Panther to battle her husband. The story line is fast-paced and filled with a few nice twists especially an excellent plausible last one that will shock the audience. Fans will appreciate this character driven tale as readers will need to know who is left standing with whom.
I don't want to spoil the plot so I won't mention any detail.
This story is romantic and a lot of surprising twists. Strongly recommended
