Descripción

London 1995, Little Brown, Fine/Fine condition, first UK edition, hard bound in dust jacket, 6x9, 359 pages. AUTOGRAPHED EDITION - SIGNED BY THE AUTHOR ( SIGNATURE ONLY ), ON A CUSTOM BOOK PLATE).------------------------------------------------------------- It's summer 1943, and Rosie Ewing is leaving on her second mission to German-occupied France. She's an agent of SOE - Special Operations Executive - and a `pianist': Resistance slang for a radio operator. With pianists' average life in the field currently six weeks, it's hardly surprising that she's shaking.Not to be, you'd need to be bone-headed. Whereas Rosie's brighter than most. She's twenty-five, a war-widow and very attractive. The only man with a toe-hold in her life is an Australian, Ben Quarry; her relationship with him began with a one-night stand in London a year ago. Now, she's very much alone - and terrifyingly vulnerable, well aware of the consequences of a second's carelessness or bad luck, or treachery. Or of a fellow agent crumbling under torture, naming names. You wouldn't blame him, or her; a recurring agony of self-doubt, in fact, is how long she herself might hold out against Gestapo or SD bestiality.---------------------------------------------------------------------Her brief is to help set up a new network in Rouen, where the old one has been blown and the one agent still at large is suspected of having betrayed his colleagues. That's for her to sort out when she gets there. If she gets there. She's to be landed from a motor gunboat in a remote cove on the Brittany coast, has then to get to Paris by train carrying forged papers, a radio transceiver and more than a million francs in cash.
