Very Good/Good. 499 pages; light edge wear, corners bumped, some edge wear to jacket; Sold as a sex-slave for $1 million, Belladonna endures years of abuse at the hands of an anonymous English aristocrat and his peers. She escapes with her daughter and two servants and they settle in New York, opening a decadent nightclub, in the hope of luring those who abused her.

Who is Belladonna?In New York City, she's known only as the mysterious masked woman who presides over the most exclusive, opulent club of the times.In Virginia's blue-blood countryside, she's known as the Contessa, the elusive heiress who flaunts convention and shuns human contact.But then there are a wretched few who remember her from "The Club" and knew her as a fresh-faced innocent whom they desired...and misled...and left to the sadistic devices of a nobleman who robbed her of her youth, her dignity, and, ultimately her heart.As Belladonna's story, told by one of her faithful manservants, slowly unfolds, we learn the horrifying truth behind Belladonna's masks and her insatiable desire for vengeance. It is a truth that involves betrayal, murder, depravity -- a truth so chilling that it will pit brother against brother, father against son, and will force Belladonna to ultimately confront the one man who can ultimately either destroy her, or set her free.

Michael Bond - the man behind Paddington Bear

"All the same ... it's a very important name. And I don't expect there are many bears in the world called Paddington!"

A lonely toy bear on an empty shop shelf on Christmas Eve in 1956 first captured the attention of Michael Bond, who kindly shared Paddington with the world.
