World War II comes to Farleigh Place, the ancestral home of Lord Westerham and his five daughters, when a soldier with a failed parachute falls to his death at the estate. After his uniform and possessions raise suspicions, MI5 operative and circle of relatives friend Ben Cresswell is covertly tasked with determining if the person is a German spy. The assignment also offers Ben the danger to be near Lord Westerham’s middle daughter, Pamela, whom he furtively loves. But Pamela has her own secret: she has taken a job at Bletchley Park, the British code-breaking facility.
As Ben follows a trail of spies and traitors, which might include any other member of Pamela’s circle of relatives, he discovers that some throughout the realm have an appalling, history-altering agenda. Can he, with Pamela’s lend a hand, stop them before England falls?
Inspired by the events and other folks of World War II, creator Rhys Bowen crafts a sweeping and riveting saga of class, circle of relatives, love, and betrayal.
