All Jolene Carter has ever wanted is a bakery of her own. There’s only one problem. Her father, Robert Carter, is a world-renowned art thief and she’s, well, sort of his protégé. But he’s promised her this next job in New York will be their last, and she won’t let anyone get in the way of her dreams…especially not the distractingly delicious FBI agent hot on her tail.
Paris – once city of light now shuttered and dark under Nazi occupation – breeds deception and betrayal. Into this lethal world, a young teacher struggles to protect her students at an unbearable cost of brutality and sexual submission. Then, an improbable chance for escape when an American she thought lost in the fog of war returns to Paris in a desperate bid to get a German defector out of France to London. In this toxic web of uncertainty, where information is as valuable as money and as dangerous as any weapon, they find themselves torn between impossible choices where the only certainty is loss.
