A wartime chronicle of sacrifice, suffering, compassion and love
'The Japanese won't wait much longer to attack. Can't you understand we're on borrowed time '
December 1941. The whole of South East Asia appears to be capitulating before the rising sun and four remarkable people are about to reassess their lives:
Lexi Robinson: the doctor with a secret from the past who escapes before Hong Kong is invaded, only to find herself still within the enemy net.
John Drayton Whitby: Australian army officer who focuses on the long, harrowing fight for freedom even whilst his mind clouds with suspicions about his wife.
Hank 'Trap' Trapperton: the West Point-trained American 'spy' who is John Drayton's trusted friend and yet not really his friend at all.
And Kathleen Leigh, the woman brought up to believe a lie until the day comes when she must confront the appalling truth.

'[A] riveting bestseller - Sunday Telegraph
'A great rollercoaster of a novel, with plenty of fierce fighting, thrilling exploits and tender romance. The main charcaters...are well-rounded and full of flaws and complexities [and] the exoitic backdrop is well depicted' - Historical Novels Review
