Torn apart by war, Saffron Courtney and Gerhard von Meerbach are thousands of miles apart, both struggling for their lives. Gerhard - despite his objections to the Nazi regime - is fighting for the Fatherland, hoping to one day have the opportunity to rid Germany of Hitler and his cronies. But as his unit is thrown into the hellish attrition of the Battle of Stalingrad, he knows his chances of survival are dwindling by the day. Meanwhile Saffron - recruited by the Special Operations Executive and sent to occupied Belgium to discover how the Nazis have infiltrated SOE's network - soon finds herself being hunted by Germany's most ruthless spymaster. Confronted by evil beyond their worst imaginings, the lovers must each make the hardest choice of all: sacrifice themselves, or do whatever they can to survive, hoping that one day they will be reunited.

Wilbur Smith fans skipnthis book!

I started this book because I have read and really liked nearly all of of Wilbur Smith's books but this plot was so preposterous that I quit reading after 20 pages or so. Picture a beautiful rich young woman in 1939 Paris, in love with a rich German she just met on the ski slopes at St Moritz, who now has to go off to war with the Nazis. She then, some how a year or two later, becomes a British special forces sabatour who is sent into Norway alone to blow up a bridge? Sounds like a plot from a romance novel and it is pure trash.
Maybe he is just past it, I don't know but this is a waste in my opinion.
