The Order Of the Arrow Author:Michael T. Hinkemeyer "Anne Davis has a bright future - a promising career in Medieval history lies ahead, once she has finished her dissertation on "The Dark Side of Chivalry" - and she will soon be wed to the man she loves, Professor Doug Leeds. But on a single, horrifying night, her dreams are shattered forever by a crazed, knife-wielding maniac who destroys her ... more »parents, her fiance - and barely misses her.
After a year in a private sanitarium, Anne thinks she may be ready to face the world again - though she's not quite ready for what her best friend Darla Holmes has in mind. Darla is sure that LIFEDREAMS, her $100,000-per-video dating service, is just what Anne needs to meet the right man and regain control of her life. Anne has doubts until she sees Chandler Kane. He seems too good to be true: recently widowed, dashingly handsome, and fabulously wealthy, he owns his own private island off the East Coast. And his expert, detailed knowledge of fourteenth -century Europe is nothing less than uncanny. Anne has found the perfect man; she accepts his proposal of marriage on their first date.
The new Mrs. Kane is swept away to Manor Island. There, her husband lives like a lord, with servants and "serfs!' The few idle rich of the island - the "Order of the Arrow" - spend their time re-enacting the glorious tournaments of the Middle Ages, and Kane is their finest Champion. But all is not what it appears to be in Chandler Kane's fourteenth-century paradise; the servants go in fear of their masters, and the superstitious "villagers" barely speak of the first Milady Kane - except in terrified whispers.
Anne herself is still in terrible danger. The attack that took the lives of her parents and fiance was no random crime of opportunity. Anne Davis, the new Milady Kane, is the prey that the killer seeks, and he will cross land and sea to find her - and finish what he started."« less
