A "splendidly sharp... mix of espionage, wifely identity crisis, and unlikely romance" by the author of the Dalziel and Pascoe mysteries (Kirkus Reviews).

Best known for his Dalziel and Pascoe novels, which were adapted into a hit BBC series, Reginald Hill proves himself to be a "master of... cerebral puzzle mysteries" in his stand-alone thrillers as well -- now available as ebooks (The New York Times).

Molly Keatley is a happy housewife living comfortably day-to-day in Westcliff-on-Sea. That changes in a heartbeat when her husband, Sam, grabs his suitcase, offers a hurried "I love you," sprints out the door, and disappears from her life. Then, a British agent invites himself in with shattering news: Sam is a Soviet spy and traitor. And his secrets don't end there. Though her dream life has been upended by an unforgivable betrayal, Molly won't be intimidated. Not by Sam's unstable mistress, not by British Intelligence, nor by Sam's colleagues, who are watching every move she makes. But when she receives a surreptitious invitation from Sam to join him in Bucharest, Molly's life will change once again as she discovers the nature of his lies, the consequences of deception, and the truth about her own desires.

Reginald Hill has crafted a "terrific, suspenseful tale and an extraordinary heroine" (Cleveland Plain-Dealer).
