Author(s): Simon Scarrow
A dramatic and atmospheric novel of war, betrayal and friendship against the backdrop of a beautiful Greek island during World War 2 In the early 1930s schoolboys Peter Dorner and Andreas Papandraki became friends while Peter's father worked on an archaeological dig on the Greek island of Lefkas. Years later, at the height of the Second World War, they are fated to meet again. Now, though, Peter is an intelligence officer in the German army, brought in to help suppress the partisans, while Andreas is the leader of the local resistance movement. Peter's knowledge of the island and its people is now a deadly weapon against his old friend, and the many others who made his childhood visit so idyllic. The decisions each man makes will be critical to the destiny of countless men, women and children, as they stand torn between loyalty to each other and loyalty to the country of their birth.
