In August 1945, SOE agent Rosie Ewing heads to Paris to extricate two agents who have fallen into the hands of the Gestapo. Her plan is to locate Jacqueline, a woman who has done work for the SOE but who also has relations with the Nazis. As a collaborator, Rosie points out to her, she risks reprisal when the war is over. Rosie offers her protection if she will introduce her to her latest boyfriend, a high-ranking Nazi who has been interrogating the captured pair. Nicolette McKenzie mixes and matches French and British accents well, but German and Norwegian accents less so. McKenzie seems to enjoy crafting the tension of the novel and keeps the listener riveted. B.H.B. © AudioFile 2009, Portland, Maine [Published: DECEMBER 2009]
