Summary
Rachel is the daughter of an affluent Rotterdam Jewish family who are ambushed while trying to escape into Allied territory. She alone survives, and ends up in the Dutch Resistance, transformed into blond Ellis de Vries, playing Mata Hari to high-ranking German officer Ludwig Müntze. The officer can feel the Allies closing in, and is eager to forge a separate peace with the resistance fighters who may soon become the Dutch government, and keeps her secret. Meanwhile, someone in the resistance is systematically undermining the operation and betraying escaping Jewish families. For Rachel and Müntze alike, life in occupied Holland is terrifying. Expectations can be fatally reversed in seconds, and interlocking webs of secrecy and betrayal keep everyone always on edge
Awards note
