Winner of McIlvanney’s Novel of the Year Award 2019 A body has been found. The elderly victim’s identity has been cleverly hidden, but one thing is clear: she was killed in the way of traitors to the Resistance in the second World War. To find the answers in this, the police inspector Ines Picaut must look to the past, and 1940 France, a time of sworn fidelity and of promises not kept, where the men and women of the Resistance have fought for survival against the Nazi invaders. But, as Picaut soon discovers, there are those in the present, the future of which depends on the past remaining buried, and kill to keep their secrets safe.
