The matchless Katherine Kellgren artfully presents this accomplished historical mystery, which shifts in time from WWII to the present day. Young reporter Kate Murray encounters elderly Andrew Deacon, who makes two significant revelations just before he's killed by a hit-and-run driver. Two plotlines follow, one in the past, one in the present: Kellgren touchingly portrays the kind, gentlemanly Deacon in flashbacks involving wartime spies, one of whom is Kellgren's grandmother. In the present, Kellgren captures the feisty and dedicated journalist as she pursues the complicated story of the spies while following their circuitous route across Europe. Audio is the perfect format for the unexpected transitions of time and setting. Kellgren's best creation is Murray's beloved grandmother, who reluctantly shares painful secrets with her granddaughter and beautifully recounts an unusual love story that will bring tears for what might have been.
