Summary, etc.:
Digging up lost secrets is always dangerous. For the past three years, Grace Blakely has been desperate to find out the truth about her mother's murder. She thought it would bring her peace. She thought it would lead her to answers. She thought she could put the past to rest. But the truth has only made her a target. And the past? The only way to put the past to rest is for Grace to kill it once and for all. On Embassy Row, power can make you a victor or a victim; love can turn you into a fool or a fugitive; and family can lead you forward or bury you deep. Trust is a luxury. Death is a very real threat. And a girl like Grace must be very careful about which secrets she brings to light.

    The second title in the Embassy Row series picks up right where the first book left off. Grace Blakeley, granddaughter to the U.S. ambassador, has just learned the truth about her mother's death, but this truth has not set her free—it's only raised more questions. When her brother Jamie's friend Spence kisses her on a remote island off Adria, it sets off a chain of events Grace could never have anticipated. Spence's body washes up ashore, and Grace's friend Alexei is the suspected killer. Relentless pacing and intrigue keep this one moving along at a swift pace as Grace and her friends work to protect Alexei while entertaining the possibility of his involvement. Secret societies and a more developed sense of Adrian history add complexity to an already engaging story. Carter handles the darker material—and hints of romance—with a light touch. Twists and turns in the novel's last pages will make Carter's fans ravenous for the third title. An exhilarating follow-up. Copyright 2014 Booklist Reviews.
