Set against the background of imminent war and moving from Berlin to Cambridge, from Whitehall to the Kent countryside, and from the Fens to the Aragon Front in Spain, this international thriller marks the beginning of a major new series from  Rory Clements. When a renowned member of the county set and his wife are found horribly murdered, a maverick history professor finds himself dragged into a world of espionage. But the deeper Thomas Wilde delves, the more he wonders whether the murders are linked to the death of a Cambridge student from an apparent overdose – and, just as worryingly, to the scandal surrounding King Edward VIII and his mistress Wallis Simpson…The best- selling author of the John Shakespeare books brings his trademark mix of history and thriller into the twentieth century, with exhilarating results!
