Description

By the Sunday Times best-selling author of The Lie.

Forbidden love, intimate betrayal and the devastating power of exposure drive Helen Dunmore's remarkable new title.

London, November 1960: the Cold War is at its height. Spy fever fills the newspapers, and the political establishment knows how and where to bury its secrets.

When a highly sensitive file goes missing, Simon Callington is accused of passing information to the Soviets and arrested.

His wife, Lily, suspects that his imprisonment is part of a cover-up and that more powerful men than Simon will do anything to prevent their own downfall. She knows that she, too, is in danger and must fight to protect her children.

But what she does not realise is that Simon has hidden vital truths about his past and may be found guilty of another crime that carries with it an even greater penalty.

A Trapped in the Driveway Book!

This is a "Trapped in driveway book." which means its so compelling you can't get out of your car and turn it off so you just stay in the car listening with heart in mouth.
First rate plotting, characters and history. Couldn't be better. Brava, Helen Dunmore!
Wonderful reader who gets all the accents just right. Brava Emma Fenney!

Fantastic read and gripping to the end

Was gripped and listened during my commute every day for a week. Couldn't put it down. Beautiful crisp reading with just enough emotion for these rather buttoned up characters. Really in-keeping with the context.

decent story, but somehow felt incomplete...

Good story, but not gripping... Lots of good relationship and character development, but missing more in the spy story, I thought. Loved the narration and voices..
