Germany, 1946
History hides many secrets
One woman will hunt for the truth…

*Previously published as ‘Miss Graham’s Cold War Cookbook’*

'Celia Rees is a superb writer, and this novel has one of the most irresistible and unique story hooks I've ever come across' Sophie Hannah

Daughter. Sister. Friend. Spy.

It’s 1946 and the dust of war has settled over Europe. But for Edith Graham, an ordinary woman living an ordinary life, her journey is only just beginning.

Escaping her humdrum existence, Edith is swept into war-torn Germany and recruited to draw elusive Nazis out of hiding.

But the closer she gets to the truth, the more blurred the line between good and evil. In a shadowy world of shifting loyalties, where no-one is quite who they seem to be, who can Edith trust?

Edith Graham is a sophisticated, warm-blooded and talented protagonist, who must learn not to trust anyone’ Michelle Lovric ‘I couldn't put it down . . .
