Author: John Altman

Publisher: Fourth Estate (2002)

It is February 1940, and England is desperate to find out when and how Hitler will make his move west towards France.

But the Germans are on to her quickly – too quickly. 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 scenes, unpredictable twists, and a memorable gallery of characters, this is suspense writing at its best.
