In the fall of 1940, the Nazis are at the height of their power - France is occupied, Britain is enduring the Blitz and is under threat of invasion, America is neutral and Russia is in an uneasy alliance with Germany. Stephen Metcalfe, the younger son of a prominent American family, is a well-known man about town in occupied Paris. He's also a minor asset in the US's secret intelligence forces in Europe. Through a wild twist of fate, it falls to Metcalfe to instigate a bold plan that may be the only hope for what remains of the free world.

Review quote

He knows how to tell them, does Mr Ludlum, having had plenty of practice since he published The Scarlatti Inheritance back in 1971, and 23 books later he is still going strong, cranking up the narrative tension like the old pro he undoubtedly is. So here we are in 1940 in enemy occupied Paris and one Stephen Metcalfe, American man about town, has a plan to save the free world from Nazi tyranny.
