Never told before, a true story officially airbrushed from history since the 1920s, the stormy relationship between the Prince of Wales (later King Edward VIII and Duke of Windsor) and his first love, a remarkable woman, beautiful, ruthless, even tougher than Wallis Simpson.

This major royal scandal - involving the brutal murder of an Egyptian playboy and efforts to protect the Prince from exposure as a treacherous wastrel - was superbly covered up by the British Establishment and has remained secret ever since.

This book is the product of several years' research, accessing unpublished documents held in the Royal Archives and private collections in England and France.
