Sobre o livro
In the unforgiving WWII climate of 1940, 21-year old Nora is faced with a perilous ultimatum: Enlist with Stalin’s secret police as a honey trap, or face the death of her family. Despairingly she agrees.
Nora finds herself struggling to seduce her target, John Murray, a British Embassy cypher in Moscow.
As two disparate lives intertwine, their desperate escape leads the couple through frozen Arctic wastelands, clutching forged papers and hopes not just for survival but for a future together.
