Then he lowers his voice. “After last week’s events, I’m not taking any chances.”The younger officer snaps up from his stool. “You heard him. You two, follow me!” he says, scowling at an attractive couple in their mid-twenties. Both look innocent enough. What set the agents off? I’m not sure if the junior officer’s abrupt tone is meant to impress his superior or intimidate those of us waiting in line. Judging by our expressions, I don’t think either strategy is working well for Mr. Mall Cop.“You can’t be serious,” the woman says. “I’m not going with you. And I’m definitely not getting naked.”Her travel companion jumps in. “We’re just tech professionals on our way to meet with a private client in London. Why the search?”They argue back and forth. Their growing resistance and escalating voices cause other officers to stop their check-in process. Pens freeze midway through verifying a long line of travelers anxious to get through security and one step closer to their anticipated destinations.The other officers place their paperwork down and shuffle closer to the couple. Easygoing chitchat among the passengers dissipates. Like a thin metal wire stretchedtaut, the patience in the room is dangerously close to snapping.“I think there’s going to be a problem here,” Nick whispers to me, Darren, and Chloe.“Yeah,” Chloe says. “This is starting to feel a little weird.”The senior officer towers directly over the couple in front of us. He looks crusty and weathered, like old leather left out in the afternoon sun too long. His eyes bug out slightly, but oddly they don’t blink. He’s close enough to smell—a musty odor, a mixture of cheap aftershave and wet dog. I read the lettering on his narrow tan name tag:Officer McNultey“Don’t give us that ‘tech professional’ spiel,” the irritable officer hisses. “We know exactly who you are. We can either discuss details here or privately back inour control room.”At the words control room, I catch a glimmer in his eye. Maybe even a wink?The woman’s eyebrows narrow. “I said, I’m not going anywhere with you.” Her speech drips of a strength that I envy. Her associate maintains his poise, too, but I’m nearenough to see his fingers twitch nervously. I’m sure he’s capable, but the officers outnumber him half a dozen to one.I want to look at my three friends instead. Maybe they know something I don’t? But that would require turning from McNultey, and I’m not sure that’s a goodidea.“We have passports and papers,” the young businessman says, reaching in his pocket.“Stop! And keep your hands where we can see them. We know you’re linked with a SWARM sleeper cell here in the States.”Time stumbles and spins as I process his accusation. SWARM? Here? Now? A bead of perspiration trickles slowly down McNultey’s face.“Did you say SWARM?” a deep voice growls directly behind me.Something hard smacks my back…

‘What is it Peter?’ she said, after a while.
‘I can never get used to this, Alexi. Having you, that is. How did I deserve you?’

Peter Kingsmill’s life had run into the sands since the death of his wife. What was a glittering London career had lost its shine. Until, that is, his life is turned upside down by an unexpected collision of events. He inherits the family estate, meets a girl seventeen years his junior and receives an anonymous letter which casts doubt on all the certainties on which he has built his past life.
What follows is a journey of discovery which takes him back in time to war-torn Europe. To a story of betrayal in the secret world of spies and double agents, and ultimately to redemption and a bright new life.
The narrative moves at speed from the dusty plains of pre-war Poland to the frozen winter landscapes of German-occupied Norway and finally to the gentle pastoral of the north Yorkshire hills. It is a story of a search for the pieces that make up a human life; and of the love that binds those pieces together.
