Summary

Summary

When Eve left her home town of Portsmouth, she'd never intended to return. But now she has a confidence and maturity far beyond her years. This makes her a very attractive prospect to David Hatton, who is charged with selecting highly unusual, independent and intelligent candidates for the Special Operations Executive. For in the war that lies ahead, brute force won't be enough. From the earliest days of the SOE to covert operations in Europe and then to an unexpected return to Hampshire, Eve is part of the struggle in a way that few other women could manage. And when the time for role-playing and secrecy is over, who can say which is the real face of Eve?
