Synopsis: War time Tangier, policed by Franco's Guardia Civil, thick with many nationalities including Germans and Allies, bitter with the insults of Colonialism, is a dangerous place. Archaeologist Lily Sampson, recruited from her studies in Chicago by the enigmatic Dr. Drury, finds herself in Morocco digging up Neanderthal artifacts at the Cave of Hercules. And soon, working at the American Legation on an undercover mission linked to Operation Torch. The target date: November 8, 1942. The mission: to control French Morocco, Algeria, and Tunisia, squash Rommel, and thrust into Europe's underbelly. Out in the Atlantic, Ike will rely on relayed communications. But Lily's mastery of code is interrupted by murder--not one, but two—which not only imperils her, but Torch itself.

About the Author: Aileen Baron is retired from a distinguished career as a professor of archaeology at California State University, Fullerton, where her work took her to many parts of the world. She has served on panels and presented workshops on archaeology for several writers' workshops, and wrote her first novel at age 76.
