'Compulsively readable. Scarrow's excellent research makes this well-crafted novel a moving tribute to Greek resistance during the Second World War.'
“Simon Scarrow has done it again: another barnstorming book that speaks not only of the horror of war, but the ultimate heroism and self-sacrifice of those caught up in it. The glory of Simon’s books is that they can be read on so many levels: yes, they are thrilling in its truest sense, there are characters we care about deeply and they are under constant threat. But alongside this are the vignettes of a life clearly viewed, the threads of sharp social observation that set his historical thrillers apart from the greater mass.
This novel will set the record straight. Those who already love Simon’s work will love this. And he will garner, I think, a whole new generation of committed readers who want depth of character and plot as well as the adrenaline ride of a cracking historical thriller.”

A friendship formed in peace will turn into a desperate battle between enemies sworn to sacrifice everything for the countries that they love...
