Publisher's Summary

It is 1942. The theatres of war are North Africa and Italy. All eyes follow the front, but behind the scenes, a messier war continues. Cabaret singer by night, spy by day, Richard risks his life to help British servicemen escape occupied France and get back to England. Rose leads a group of dancers with mixed morals, high-kicking to entertain the troops as Hitler's bombers roar in the skies above. Then she is given orders to join the forces on the field, destination unknown. Meanwhile, a phantom pianist, who has lost the love of his life, is following Monty's soldiers across the African desert, mocking the enemies' guns by playing Beethoven between the lines.

exellent listen

I can thoroughly recommend this listen, about the 2nd World War seen through the eyes of both civilian and sevice entertainers for the troops. Includes adventure, romance and love lost. It was hard to stop listening too. Can't wait to read the rest of the series.
