Synopsis:

Stunning European-based thriller from an acclaimed young British author: ?A class act? ? Sunday Times; ?First in a field of one? ? Literary Review

Lisbon 1944. In the torrid summer heat, as the streets of the capital seethe with spies and informers, the endgame of the Intelligence war is being silently fought. The Germans have rocket technology and atomic know-how. The Allies are determined that talk of the ultimate ?secret weapon? will not be realized.
Andrea Aspinall, mathematician and spy, enters this sophisticated world through a wealthy household in Estoril. Karl Voss, military attaché to the German Legation, has arrived embittered by his implication in the murder of a Reichsminister and traumatized by Stalingrad, on a mission to rescue Germany from annihilation.
In the lethal tranquility of a corrupted paradise, Andrea and Voss meet and attempt to find love in a world where no-one can be believed. After a night of terrible violence Andrea is left with a secret which perpetuates a lifelong addiction to the clandestine world, from the brutal Portuguese fascist régime to the paranoia of Cold War Germany. And there, in an ice-gripped East Berlin, as she discovers that the deepest secrets aren?t held by governments but by those closest to you, she is forced to make the final and the hardest choice.
A consummate and passionate thriller, spanning Europe from the dark days of World War Two to the collapse of the Berlin Wall, by the Gold Dagger winning author of A Small Death in Lisbon.
