For one week only, an impenetrable castle is open to the public, and Dale Armstrong has come to Bratislava to rob it. When he finds his partner’s arms mangled, he desperately searches for a way to fix him before time runs out.
Because the war in the Far East is sapping all the allied nation’s resources, only The Nightingale Circus has the spare parts, the power, and the expertise to fix prosthetics and help the injured, but nothing is free.
Unfortunately, Dale doesn’t know about The Nightingale Circus’s side job, but a forced encounter with the most dangerous woman in the city, the Golden Lady, sends him their way. On this roller coaster of crazy twists and flips, schemes and deceit, wishes and dreams, no one can foresee how the aerialist will land.
Anything is possible in a world of Broken People.

What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
When I visited Bratislava a few years ago, I very much enjoyed the old city, and I wanted to write a story that had the action taking place there. I had this image of a man standing in the window of an old building, watching a woman in a building across the street. I wondered what he was doing there so, between other projects, I started plotting on and off.
How Did You Come up With Your Characters?
It all started with a lady with golden arms and legs and the idea of a special type of circus, and it evolved from there.
