Main Character: Grace Marsden, Harry Marsden, Ric Kramer
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 that edges closer demanding to be frightened, knowing they are safe. 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 the local zoo. When a dead woman sends her a letter and a corpse ends up in her meighbor's 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.
