Product description

Review

'The perfect fusion of history, suspense and high romance' (The Times on Black Roses)

'A thoughtful but fast-moving novel' (Reader's Digest on Black Roses)

'This well-researched story unfolds with utterly knuckle-whitening suspense, and it was my favourite escapist read of the year' (Saga Magazine on Black Roses)

'Terrific' (Elizabeth Buchan The Sunday Times on Black Roses)

'Jane Thynne's smooth writing, sensitive understanding of the era and sharp observations combine into an excellent historical thriller' (Jessica Mann Literary Review on Black Roses)

'Fast-paced and gripping' (The Sunday Times on The Winter Garden)

'A thoroughly enjoyable read: fast-paced, atmospheric and genuinely suspenseful' (Mail on Sunday on The Winter Garden)

'Both historically fascinating and a proper thriller' (Reader's Digest on The Winter Garden)

'An absolute cracker of a read...Thynne expertly maintains the suspense, while evoking the tension of Berlin as the city gathers its strength for war' (The Times on The Winter Garden)

'A thumpingly good read with a strong denouement' (Mail on Sunday on The Winter Garden)

'So convincing one forgets that it is a piece of fiction' (The Lady on The Winter Garden)

'Pre-war Germany's atmosphere of reprehension, terror and Nazi hubris is vividly evoked in a gripping but sad tale' (Jessica Mann Literary Review on The Winter Garden)

'A tale of suspense and intrigue...Thynne's grasp of the period is first-class, and she has woven in a tender wartime love story' (Mail on Sunday on A War of Flowers)

'Darkly brooding horror hangs overGermany; an irresistible page-turner packed with historical detail and toldfrom a most unusual perspective' (Kirkus Reviews on Faith and Beauty)

‘This is the fourth of the addictive ‘Clara Vine’ novels, set in Berlin on the eve of war. Clara is a half-German British agent with access to the inner circle of Nazi wives. Portraits of women such as Magda Goebbels and Eva Braun are ruthlessly truthful, but drawn with compassion. It is early 1939, and Clara is drawn into investigating the murder of a girl at the League of Faith and Beauty finishing school. Brilliant’ (Saga magazine on Faith and Beauty)
