Though Coco Chanel's name is synonymous with elegance and chic, in 1944 she was arrested at the Ritz Paris on charges of treason. What transpired during her interrogation—and why she was set free when so many other women involved with German men were imprisoned or had their heads shaved—remains a mystery and a topic of much speculation. This insightful novel from the author of I am Madame X explores the possible motivations of this complex woman and portrays the gripping battle of wits between Chanel and her accusers.
