Publisher's Summary

"I've been a scoundrel, a thief, a blackmailer, and a whore, but never a murderer. Until now...."
The year is 1929. As the world teeters on the brink of a global recession, Bletchley Park plays host to a rather special event. MI5 is celebrating its 20th anniversary, and a select band of former and current employees are gathering for a weekend of music, dance, and heavy drinking. Among them is Sir Hilary Manningham Butler, a middle-aged woman whose entire adult life has been spent masquerading as a man. She doesn't know why she has been invited - it has been many years since she left the secret service - but it is clear she is not the only one with things to hide. And when one of the other guests threatens to expose her secret, the consequences could prove disastrous for everyone.

Gripping tale that keeps you guessing all the way

This is an intriguing story with a fast pace and a few surprises along the way. The story is narrated by it's main character Sir Hilary Manningham Butler, who has been invited to Bletchley Park - in the days when it was a private residence - for a celebration of the 20 year anniversary of MI5 and he is not the only guest to be keeping a secret...

The ending of the book leaves things wide open for a sequel and I'd love to read more stories featuring this cast of characters.

This book started out very slow,but picked up speed nicely.Written and read by Jack Treby it is a first person account of a time in our history of spies and double lives.The men and women of Bletchlsy did decoding work ,among other things during the war in Britain.This is one story of a woman living a mans life and a nasty bit of bother at a reunion of old comrades face as they start dying one by one.A who dunnit?Give a listen!
