"In February 1939 it is clear that Britain will soon be at war. Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain's policy of appeasing Hitler has failed. The nation looks to Winston Churchill whose years in the wilderness, warning of the catastrophe to come, are finally over. But MI5 learns that an enemy agent has been dispatched to England to assassinate Churchill. The agent's identity must be uncovered and Lord Edward Corinth begins inquiries at Cliveden, the Asters' country house in Buckinghamshire, notorious as the headquarters of those who are prepared to go to any lengths to avert war." "Verity Browne is also there, much as she despises the so-called Cliveden Set. She has been ordered by her superiors in the Communist Party to get as close as possible to one of the Astors' guests, Joseph Kennedy, the American ambassador, who is convinced that Britain can never win a war against militant Germany." "Then the body of a man is found in the Cliveden grounds, and Verity is shocked to recognize a fellow journalist. As war looms ever closer, Edward and Verity enter a tense race against time to identify Churchill's would-be assassin and the murderer of her friend."--BOOK JACKET.

Clunky writing, trying to include too much historical information so I didn't read much of this before abandoning it for something else. Read full review
