His former mentor Professor Gordon Wolfe has been arrested for stealing top secret archive documents dating back to the Second World War. Coerced by the FBI into examining the archive for them, Nat finds intriguing references to both Wolfe’s curious activities in an Allied intelligence office in Switzerland during the war, and to a mysterious student resistance group in Berlin known as the White Rose. Following Wolfe’s cryptic clues to Europe, Nat uncovers a story of love and betrayal which is reaching out from the past with the power to destroy the present. Nat’s academic pursuit has turned into a desperate race. Others will kill for the secret – and their reward could threaten the whole world.
