Clara Vine, Anglo-German actress and spy, has been recalled to London by British Intelligence to probe reports that the Nazis and the Soviet Union are planning to make a pact. When Clara investigates the death of a young woman from the Faith and Beauty Society - the elite finishing school for Nazi girls - what she uncovers is something of infinite value to the Nazi regime - and now she herself is in danger.
