'Truly a classic writer of espionage fiction' - Len Deighton
To live in the shadowland of espionage, where the only certainties are death and deceit, is to live on the lonely margins.
The French Resistance brought James Harmer and Jane Frazer together. The Gestapo broke them apart. But it was something else that shattered their love and left them haunted by a sense of betrayal and a thirst for revenge.
One of the best story-tellers around ... There is something totally absorbing about the way in which he spins a web of mystery and imagination that never fails to fascinate. - Sydney Telegraph
This crisp, well plotted and ultimately quite touching espionage yarn gets off to a fast start... at the heart of it all is a most poignant love story. - Publishers Weekly
