Description:
August, 1938. Paris is a city living on its nerves. British actress, Clara Vine, is here to film her latest movie, having left Berlin under a cloud. Joseph Goebbels has become increasingly suspicious that Clara has been mingling in Berlin society and passing snippets of information to her contacts in the British embassy. It would have been absurd, if it hadn't also been true. With war becoming increasingly likely, Clara is approached by an undercover British operative, Guy Hamilton, who asks her to perform a task for her country: to befriend Eva Braun, Hitler's girlfriend, and to pass on any information she can gather.

The third book in the Clara Vine series of stories, set in Berlin. The book was considered to be good in parts, with plenty of descriptive writing, but at a rather superficial level. The reader isn’t particularly drawn into the characters’ minds or emotions. The book has lots of historical interest, giving an insight into the domestic lives of ordinary women and Nazi wives in pre-war Berlin. But it lacked a really gripping plot, and the tensions created seemed to just fizzle out. We gave the book 6.5/10 Camberley Library Morning Reading Group
