Book Description


John Altman's first novel was widely praised: "Deliciously atmospheric," said Publishers Weekly. "An irresistible page-turner from a welcome new voice." His second novel, however, is even better.

It is February 1940, and England is desperate to find out when and how Hitler will make his move west toward France. A young sleeper agent named Eva Bernhardt, seduced into spydom by a roguish MI6 agent named Hobbs, comes into possession of a vital piece of information and makes a run for it. But the Germans are on to her quickly- too quickly. Was her source compromised? Was that Hobbs she just saw in the street? Who are those other men shadowing her-or are they? In a lethal game of ruse and counter-ruse, the British and Germans engage in a war of intelligence, each side testing the other, searching for advantage, but there are some things even spymasters cannot control. Uncertain whom to trust, whether she is racing to her safety or her death, Eva Bernhardt is about to take her future into her own hands-and with it, perhaps the future of the entire war.

Filled with dazzling setpieces, unpredictable twists, and a memorable gallery of characters, this is suspense writing at its best.
