Paris, 1945. Janine Simonian stands accused of supplying information to the Nazi occupying forces that led to the arrest and torture of several members of the French Resistance ¿ and the brutal murder of her own husband. Fiercely patriotic, and the wife of a Jew, Janine had always been outspoken in her condemnation of the Nazis. Abwehr intelligence officer Günter Mai judged her the unlikeliest of recruits for his network of informants, resistant to all the usual triggers...until the Gestapo's reign of terror intensified, and her children were rounded up for deportation. This is a powerful tale of conscience and betrayal, as shocking as it is moving. It poses uncomfortable questions about the priorities of personal and national loyalty in a time of war.
