In the wake of World War II, a Frenchwoman learns to live for vengeance

In Geneva, a frail young woman sits down in a café. On her arm is a tattooed number—a souvenir from her time in Bergen-Belsen. As far as the French government is concerned, she is a dead woman, a casualty of the concentration camps. But after a narrow escape, Lily de St-Germain is back, and ready to take revenge on everyone who buried her.

When the war started, Lily fled the countryside for Paris, hoping to convince her husband to abandon his work at the Louvre and help get their children to safety in England. There she found him in the arms of her sister, a betrayal that pushed her into the ranks of the Résistance—that fearful band of partisans who taught her to kill, and forced her to survive. The war may end in 1945, but Lily’s battle will have only just begun.


“A master of the psychological thriller.” —Midwest Book Review

“[Janes has a] sure grasp of period detail and [a] seamless way of mixing fact and fiction.” —Booklist

“Janes has effectively recreated a period of French history that is usually unacknowledged or swept under the rug. Original and gripping.” —The Drood Review of Mystery
