Summary

Love, deception, betrayal, decisions, duty, and the truth: How did things get so complicated? The night before had been so ordinary as Julie Harris played the charming socialite at another of her husband's high-society Washington parties. But that morning Julie awoke to find herself a widow, forced to deal with the scandal surrounding Stewart Harris's death-and with the shocking, unsuspected secrets of his life. Now her search for the truth about her late husband has brought Julie to wartime London. Posing as an aide at the U.S. Embassy, she sets out to fulfill her mission: infiltrate a radical anti-fascist group-a group with mysterious ties to her husband's past. As Hitler's savage air blitz against London commences, Julie finds herself swept into a whirlwind of clashing images-of glittering parties set against the firestorm of night bombings and of treachery covered by a veneer of smiles and fair words. In a world where nothing is as it seems, and where the best of intentions can inspire the worst of actions, whom can Julie trust? One man may hold the answer, and bring hope-not only amid London's conflagration, but in the face of Julie's private inferno.
