Summary
Autumn, 1940. In this dark time, Stephen Metcalfe is living the high life in occupied Paris. The younger son of a prominent American family, Stephen is a handsome young man, a notable guest at all the best parties, and a highly desirable bachelor. He is also a minor asset in America's secret intelligence forces in Europe, cavalierly playing the Great Game like so many socially connected young men before him. But when the spy network he was a part of is suddenly dismantled by the Nazis, Metcalfe is left stranded without a contact, orders, or a contingency plan. With no one else to turn to, it falls to Metcalfe to instigate a bold scheme that may be the free world's only hope. He heads to Moscow in search of a former lover--a ballerina of questionable loyalties--with his opponents closing in on him and the war heating up
Summary
In the fall of 1940, the Nazis are at the height of their power-France is occupied, Britain is enduring the Blitz and is under threat of invasion, America is neutral, and Russia is in an uneasy alliance with Germany. Stephen Metcalfe, the younger son of a prominent American family, is a well-known man about town in occupied Paris. He's also a minor asset in the U.S.'s secret intelligence forces in Europe. Through a wild twist of fate, it falls to Metcalfe to instigate a bold plan that may be the only hope for what remains of the free world. Now he must travel to wartime Moscow to find, and possibly betray, a former lover-a fiery ballerina whose own loyalties are in question-in a delicate dance that could destroy all he loves and honors
