Serena Frome, the narrator of this brilliantly cunning novel, confesses at the very beginning that she was sacked in disgrace from her job with British Intelligence after just 18 months. The story which follows reveals how it happened. Serena’s downfall is an undercover operation which is compromised by her weakness for romance. It is a story of love, betrayal and duplicity, with the most startling deception reserved for the final pages.
