Early 1938. The German government has agreed to release a British subject from prison, but only if he is handed over to a family member. Because the man's wife is dead and his daughter ailing, the Secret Service wants Maisie Dobbs - who bears a striking resemblance to the daughter - to retrieve the man from Dachau Prison, on the outskirts of Munich.
Travelling into the heart of Nazi Germany, Maisie encounters unexpected dangers and finds herself questioning whether it's time to return to the work she loved. But the Secret Service may have other ideas . . .
Join Maisie Dobbs as she travels into the heart of the Third Reich as the shadows of war lengthen.
