Publisher's Summary

No one lives forever. But the truth survives us all. Kate Murray is deeply troubled. In front of her lies a dead man, a stranger who only minutes before had approached her wanting to tell her about a mystery, a long-forgotten murder. The crime was old, he'd told her, but still deserving of justice. Soon Kate is caught up in a dangerous whirlwind of events that takes her back into her grandmother's mysterious war-time past and across the Atlantic as she tries to retrace the dead man's footsteps. Finding out the truth is not so simple, however, as only a few people are still alive who know the story...and Kate soon realizes that her questions are putting their lives in danger. Stalked by an unknown and sinister enemy, she must use her tough journalistic instinct to find the answers from the past - before she has to say goodbye to her future.

What the Critics Say

"The matchless Katherine Kellgren artfully presents this accomplished historical mystery, which shifts in time from WWII to the present day. Young reporter Kate Murray encounters elderly Andrew Deacon, who makes two significant revelations just before he's killed by a hit-and-run driver. Two plotlines follow, one in the past, one in the present: Kellgren touchingly portrays the kind, gentlemanly Deacon in flashbacks involving wartime spies, one of whom is Kate's grandmother. In the present, Kellgren captures the feisty and dedicated journalist as she pursues the complicated story of the spies while following their circuitous route across Europe. Audio is the perfect format for the unexpected transitions of time and setting. Kellgren's best creation is Murray's beloved grandmother, who reluctantly shares painful secrets with her granddaughter and beautifully recounts an unusual love story that will bring tears for what might have been."

Long winded

I had eagerly anticipated this new book by S. Kearsley. Slogged through the entire audiobook-- the story was ok but had little to redeem itself. It was repetitious and monotonous in its descriptions and repeats of story line. Must say I thought the heroine an idiot in parts, despite assertions of her intelligence. Felt there was little real action and got sooo tired of hearing about missed personal connections. Ughhh.
The narrator was ok but screeched when scary events were occurring -- terrible and vastly annoying.
If you are a Kearsley fan as I am -- get the book, that way you can skim the long interminable descriptions and spare your ears from the screeching narrator. Overall I sadly rate this audiobook a 2.

Liked the Book - But The Narrator Drove Me Nuts

Like usual, Susanna Kearsley wrote a great book. That's why I had to give the audiobook four stars. However, the narrator's performance drove me crazy. Almost every sentence seemed over performed, but Kellgren only received two stars because I really don't like having the narrator scream the narration at me during intense scenes.
