From a critically acclaimed author comes a WWII standalone novel, following an SOE agent sent into Nazi-occupied France to track down and extract a missing radio operator.
It’s 1943 and for agents of the Special Operations Executive, a mission to Nazi-occupied Paris is a death sentence. So why has unlikely spy Harry Mitchell volunteered to return to the city? The French capital is at war with itself. Informers, gangsters, collaborators and Resistance factions are as ready to slit each other's throats as they are the Germans'. The occupiers are no better: the Gestapo and Abwehr – military intelligence – are locked in their own lethal battle for dominance. Mitchell’s family are still in Paris and have fallen into the hands of the Gestapo. With disaster afflicting his mission from the outset, it will take all his ingenuity to get into the capital... unaware that every step he takes is a step closer to a trap.
“A gripping ride through a memorable period of history.” WILBUR SMITH
