June 1940: the first summer of the war. Berlin is being bombed and nightly blackouts suffocate the city.
Then France falls and a shadow descends. A shadow has fallen over Clara Vine's own life, too.
She is an Anglo-German woman in a country that hates England.

Then she is summoned to meet the Propaganda minister Joseph Goebbels who has decided that Clara should adopt a new role - as his spy - and that she must go to Paris on a mission.

But Goebbels has other ideas and soon Clara is drawn into a web that threatens to destroy her.
As everything she holds dear is taken as ransom, she must fight to protect her family - and to survive...
