Rating: 5 out of 5

This is a dark and menacing book describing a very dark and menacing time. It is very well written and incredibly transportative. On at least one occasion I found myself grabbing my husband by the hand to make sure he was still there beside me. I’ve read, heard stories and seen films about this period. None have made me feel the threat of being guilty of something even if the authorities don’t know what it is yet as this one has. It is also a good thriller too keeping the pages being turned long after I should have been asleep.

I suspect some aspects of this story will stay with me for a while.
