As a young woman, Roza Mojeska was part of an underground resistance group in Communist Poland. But after her arrest, an agent of the secret police makes her a devil's bargain - and in the dark of a government prison, a terrible choice is made.

Now, fifty years later, Anselm is called upon to investigate both Roza's story and a mystery dating back to the early 1980s, in the icy grip of the Cold War.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Extraordinarily moving: a thoughtful and extremely well written tale not only about the lengths to which an oppressive regime will go to protect itself from its people, but also about the unexpected burdens of freedom * Guardian *
One of the best-constructed and fasted-paced thrillers I've read in ages * Readers' Digest *
A brilliantly researched, powerful dark novel about hidden events during the Cold War and the courage of those determined to gain freedom for their country * Illawarra Mercury *
Brodrick creates a human story, rich in plot, thoroughly researched and full of believable characters. This is my first Father Anselm novel; it won't be my last. * Herald Sun *
A complex tale of betrayal * Courier Mail *
A moving story of quiet heroism * Ballarat Courier *
A complex, tightly written story about life in Poland after World War II . . . [an] intriguing portrayal of a fascinating, shadowy world where informers interact with their victims every day * Launceston Examiner *
