"This beautifully structured and highly suspenseful story of the Dutch Resistance is positively Hitchcockian in its examination of the darker reaches of the human heart." - Booklist

When her grandfather dies, Tamar inherits a box containing a series of clues and coded messages. Out of the past, another Tamar emerges, a man involved in the terrifying world of resistance fighters in Nazi-occupied Holland half a century before. His story is one of passionate love, jealousy, and tragedy set against the daily fear and casual horror of the Second World War - and unraveling it is about to transform Tamar's life forever.

A rare 'gem' of a book. One of those 'sleepers' that you discover by chance and are delighted by your find. 8 out of 10.
