"It is the summer of 1976 and someone is trying to kill Sally Gilmartin. The only person she can trust is her daughter, Ruth a young single mother...Now Sally must tell her daughter the truth: She is actually Eva Delectorskaya, a Russian emigre recruited for the British Secret Service in 1939, after the murder of her brother, also a spy. Full of tension and drama, and based on a remarkable chapter in Anglo-American history, this is storytelling at its finest."; Recommended by Norma H.
