Selfridges' stylish and devilishly handsome Frenchman, Henri Leclair, quit Selfridge's to join his childhood love, Valerie Maurel, in New York. Five years on, he has reappeared in London under mysterious circumstances (and an extremely scruffy beard). But the passion he once bestowed on Selfridges' windows and his protégé, Agnes, is now mired in something darker. Can his old friends and ex-lover bring him back into Selfridges, and into the light of creativity and truth? Or will his dark secrets, once revealed, mark an irreversibly changed man?
