Summary

A taut and gripping thriller: King Edward VIII is on the throne and keen to broker peace at any cost - WWII could turn out very differently....
As the storm clouds gather over Europe and German troops are amassing, a clandestine 'King's Party' of fascist peace campaigners is stealthily undermining the war effort.
Back from Ceylon to work on a newly founded literary magazine, Cynthia Kirkpatrick finds herself at the centre of a web of intrigue. London shivers with uncertainty. As Hitler's troops encroach further into Europe, Cynthia soon discovers that taking sides can be a very dangerous business.

Disappointed

This is the slowest and most pointless purchase I have ever bought from Audible. It would have been more interesting watching paint dry.
