The setting is Berlin. Into this divided city, wrenched between East and West, between past and present; comes twenty-five-year-old Leonard Marnham, assigned to a British-American surveillance team. Though only a pawn in an international plot that is never fully revealed to him, Leonard uses his secret work to escape the bonds of his ordinary life – and to lose his unwanted innocence. The promise of his new life begins to be fulfilled as Leonard becomes a crucial part of the surveillance team, while simultaneously being initiated into a new world of love and sex by Maria, a beautiful young German woman. It is a promise that turns to horror in the course of one terrible evening – a night when Leonard Marnham learns just how much of his innocence he's willing to shed.

Isadora Dean would never remember what happened during the last terrible moments before her car crashed – but one thing she did know: her baby had not died in the crash. Her baby had been taken away from her by a girl whose face she would never, ever forget, a girl who haunted her dreams. But who could she get to believe her? Not the doctors, not the police – not even her husband. Most women would have given up in despair – but Izzy was a fighter, a brilliantly successful news correspondent. She would find her baby whatever it took – if Bella was still alive…
Compelling drama from Michael Dobbs, author of the superb political thrillers, 'House Of Cards' and 'To Play The King'.
