3.5/5 Goodreads

It is wartime London, and the carelessness of people with no future flows through the evening air. Stella discovers that her lover Robert is suspected of selling information to the enemy. Harrison, the British intelligence agent on his trail, wants to bargain - the price for his silence being Stella herself. Slowly, the flimsy structures of Stella's life begin to break into pieces.

"Probably the most intelligent noir ever written... fills the reader's heart with dread" - Los Angeles Times
