They came for me in November nineteen fifty-one and took me to Mokotow prison. Cambridge, the present day. And out of the past, a cry for help: Father Anselm, the brilliant Benedictine, receives a visit from an old friend with a dangerous story to tell - the story of a woman betrayed by time, fate, and someone close to her ...someone still unknown. As a young woman, Roza Mojeska was part of an underground resistance group in Communist Poland. But after her arrest, an agent of the secret police makes her a devil's bargain - and in the dark of a government prison, a terrible choice is made. Now, fifty years later, Anselm is called upon to investigate both Roza's story and a mystery dating back to the early 1980s, in the icy grip of the Cold War. And as he peels back years of history, decades of secrets, a half-century of lies, he exposes a truth that victim and torturer would keep hidden...

About the Author:

Bill Brodrick was an Augustinian friar before leaving the order to become a practising barrister.

Review:

Extraordinarily moving: a thoughtful and extremely well written tale not only about the lengths to which an oppressive regime will go to protect itself from its people, but also about the unexpected burdens of freedom Guardian A literary and nuanced thriller Sunday Business Post Ireland One of the best-constructed and fasted-paced thrillers I've read in ages Readers' Digest William Brodrick's crime novels have the great (and unusual) merit of being unlike anyone else's, not least because his series hero, Father Anselm, is a Gray's Inn barrister turned Suffolk monk ... always interesting -- Andrew Taylor Sunday Times A profound, uplifting story of murder and spiritual understanding The Tablet
