    It’s 1940, and Bill Trave is a Detective Constable in his early 30s working in West London. France has fallen and the capital is being bombed both day and night - it seems against all odds that Britain can survive the onslaught. Almost single-handedly Winston Churchill maintains the country’s morale, with the German enemy convinced that his removal would win them the War.

    A gripping courtroom drama combining psychological suspense and political intrigue from the pen of ex-barrister-turned-crime novelist Simon Tolkien, grandson of J.R.R. Tolkien.

The prosecution case depends heavily on the evidence of one witness - Greta’s sixteen-year-old stepson, Thomas.
