August, 1938. Paris is a city living on its nerves and the threat of war hangs heavy as a distant thunderstorm on a summer's day. British actress, Clara Vine, is in Paris to film her latest movie, having left Berlin under a cloud. Joseph Goebbels has become increasingly suspicious that Clara has been mingling in Berlin society and passing snippets of information to her contacts in the British Embassy. It would have been absurd, if it hadn't also been true... With war becoming increasingly likely, Clara is approached by an undercover British operative, Guy Hamilton, who asks her to perform a task for her country: to befriend Eva Braun, Hitler's girlfriend, and to pass on any information she can gather. Clara knows that to undertake this task is to put herself back in danger. But she also knows that soon she may have to do everything in her power to protect her country...Praise for The Winter Garden: 'An absolute cracker of a read...fast-paced and gripping from the start. Thynne expertly maintains the suspense, while evoking the tension of Berlin as the city gathers its strength for war' Sunday Times 'A thoroughly enjoyable read: fast-paced, atmospheric and genuinely suspenseful' Mail on Sunday 'Pre-war Germany's atmosphere of repression, terror and Nazi hubris is vividly evoked in a gripping but sad tale' Literary Review Praise for Black Roses: 'Terrific' Elizabeth Buchan 'The perfect fusion of history, suspense and high romance....the pace is relentless, the background brilliantly evoked and the sex gorgeously spiced with danger.' The Times 'A compelling story of love and betrayal in Hitler's Berlin' Daisy Goodwin, author of The Last Duchess
