Synopsis: As Allied forces close in on Berlin in spring 1945, a solitary figure emerges from the wreckage that is Germany. It is Marian Sutro, whose existence was last known to her British controllers in autumn 1943 in Paris. One of a few surviving agents of the Special Operations Executive, she has withstood arrest, interrogation, incarceration, and the horrors of a concentration camp, but at what cost? Returned to an England she barely knows, Marian searches for something on which to ground the rest of her life. When the man who hijacked her mission to Paris emerges from the shadows to draw her into the ambiguities of the Cold War, she sees a way to make amends for the past.
