Publisher's Summary

She is called Simone. She is the illicit lover of Dr. Emile Bastien, who practices medicine on the rue de Maubeuge, treating Parisians and Germans alike. Simone is more than his mistress; she is the guardian of all of his most dangerous family secrets. But there is one secret the mistress has not been let in on: an ingenious scheme that arouses her suspicions even as others plot to keep it from her at all costs. The mistress retaliates by hatching a plan of her own involving a guilt-ridden SS officer, a suspicious death, and a chilling interrogation. But an unexpected reversal of fortune leads to a confrontation that will have consequences no one could have planned.

Set in a hothouse atmosphere of growing paranoia with stunning twists and turns, this tour de force will haunt you long after the fiendishly clever denouement.

Critic Reviews

"This macabre story of intrigue, deception, and hatred is chilling to the core, and Kendall makes it all the more believable in [her] flawless recitation...." (AudioFile)
"Kendall reads in a brisk, fully accented manner that clearly identifies each character and lends the required Gallic touch to the production." (KLIATT)
