By the Sunday Times best-selling author of Longbourne.
Paris, 1939: The pavement rumbles with the footfalls of Nazi soldiers marching along the Champs Elysees. A young writer, recently arrived from Ireland to make his mark, smokes one last cigarette with his lover before the city they know is torn apart. Soon he will put his own life and the lives of his loved ones in mortal danger by joining the Resistance....
Spies, artists, deprivation, danger and passion: this is a story of life at the edges of human experience and of how one man came to translate it all into art.

David Rintoul is excellent as always in his narration.
I only listened to 30 minutes of this book,I found it very hard to follow and understand,
I have little doubt it is well written all I can say is it started with two people talking and It took 30 minutes for me to realise it was a man talking to his mother,Instead of just making it clear from the start as to who was who.
No doubt it is a well written book ,but I just found it hard work and gave up after 30 minutes.
I have marked performance high as David Rintoul is my favourite narrator. I dont know if it is a good story as I gave up so early.But some people may like the style in which the book is written.
I cannot say.
