Description

A British secret agent must face her greatest nightmare to unravel a dangerous mystery — if she is to save her country from its worst enemies.

Hampshire, 1943.


Katherine Isobel ‘Kim’ Maxwell has been languishing in the ‘cooler’ up in Scotland in what she sees as punishment for getting caught — and tortured — by the Nazis, before being freed by Resistance fighters and smuggled back into England. Now she is sent for by the head of SOE. This is her chance to prove herself. 


A fellow agent has been found murdered. The victim had a very special function in their training plan for secret agents, at the SOE finishing school, Palace House in Beaulieu. Her last ‘student’ was a nervous trainee called Lucien who was sent to France as a radio operator — and almost immediately captured by the Nazis. 

Kim is ordered to run an internal investigation into Lilian’s murder. She soon discovers that there is every indication is that Lilian heard something she shouldn’t have and that her murder was a warning. Kim also spots a strange zigzag pattern on the wall above the bed where Lilian was found, which Lilian drew using her own blood as she lay dying. 

Aided by Roland, aka the Red Fox, a new recruit with a shady past of his own, she begins to uncover a plot that extends far beyond the secretive world of SOE. 

But in order to expose this dangerous web of deceit, Kim must go back into the heart of occupied France — and into the hands of the enemy . . . 

This unputdownable and atmospheric Second World War novel will grip you to the very end. Perfect for readers of Rhys Bowen, Jeffery Archer, Rory Clements, Gretta Mulrooney, Kate Quinn and Lucinda Riley.
