When a highly sensitive file goes missing, Simon Callington is accused of passing information to the Soviets, and arrested.
His wife, Lily, suspects that his imprisonment is part of a cover-up, and that more powerful men than Simon will do anything to prevent their own downfall.
She knows that she too is in danger, and must fight to protect her children. But what she does not realise is that Simon has hidden vital truths about his past, and may be found guilty of another crime that carries with it an even greater penalty.

The characters are so persuasive in this Cold War story. So many twists and turns you really got pulled into that era. It was hard to put the book down. Helen Dunmore is such a good author. She really draws you into the drama and tells each characters story brilliantly. I loved it!
