Product description

Review

It is a testament to Helm's detective skills that she has marshalled evidence to refute the various suppositions about Atkins, presenting a truth more surprising and more compelling than the numerous fictions constructed about this dedicated, if flawed, intelligence officer (WATERSTONE'S BOOKS QUARTERLY)

What makes the book as fascinating as the best of thrillers is that at every stage we know as much as she does, tracking Vera down clue by clue, contact by contact . . . It makes compulsive reading (Peter Lewis, DAILY MAIL)

She has now written a truly stunning book - quite the best by a non-veteran of secret warfare . . . If any young reader wonders 'why the bunting and the occasional tear (this VE Day, I recommend this book')

John Crossland, SUNDAY TIMES ('Carefully researched and engaging biography')

Book Description

The definitive account of an absorbing double mystery: the fates of the missing female SOE agents and the truth about the woman who searched for them
