Publisher's Summary

By the Sunday Times best-selling author of The Lie.
Forbidden love, intimate betrayal and the devastating power of exposure drive Helen Dunmore's remarkable new title.
London, November 1960: the Cold War is at its height. Spy fever fills the newspapers, and the political establishment knows how and where to bury its secrets.
When a highly sensitive file goes missing, Simon Callington is accused of passing information to the Soviets and arrested.
His wife, Lily, suspects that his imprisonment is part of a cover-up and that more powerful men than Simon will do anything to prevent their own downfall. She knows that she, too, is in danger and must fight to protect her children.
But what she does not realise is that Simon has hidden vital truths about his past and may be found guilty of another crime that carries with it an even greater penalty.

A simple plot and gripping story.

Have you listened to any of Emma Fenney’s other performances? How does this one compare?

No, this is my first time.

Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Yes. No. But it kept me reading till the end.

Any additional comments?

The original description of the story doesn't really relate to the story. So ignore it and just listen and be transported.
