In 1940, eighteen-year old Juliet Armstrong is reluctantly recruited
into the world of espionage. Sent to an obscure department of MI5 tasked
with monitoring the comings and goings of British Fascist sympathizers,
she discovers the work to be by turns both tedious and terrifying. But
after the war has ended, she presumes the events of those years have
been relegated to the past for ever.
Ten years later, now a producer at the BBC, Juliet is unexpectedly confronted by figures from her past. A different war is being fought now, on a different battleground, but Juliet finds herself once more under threat. A bill of reckoning is due, and she finally begins to realize that there is no action without consequence.
