In the brutal chaos of the Second World War, three people find their lives inextricably inter-woven in a web of courage, betrayal and love:Julie Lescaux, the young Englishwoman caught up in one of the most dangerous operations of the French Resistance; Paul Vasson, vicious Paris pimp turned Nazi collaborator: David Freymann, German scientist caught up in unimaginable horror, destined to lose everything except his faith in his own discovery.
