Wartime Europe - 1944: Britain's spy chiefs in London are stunned when Germany's master spy-catcher, Walter Berner, mysteriously appears from the shadows and is seen in Paris. MI6 sends their intrepid Agent Eve back to the city she grew up in to investigate. She is soon having to live on her wits as she uncovers a web of double-crossing and a deadly rivalry between the German military and the Nazis. With Walter Berner pulling the strings in the background, Eve fights a murderous game of cat and mouse until their fates suddenly intertwine. The question is, will they survive? Intricately researched, this is a tale of the trickery of wartime communications, the intricacies of secret intelligence, and the fragility of life for those caught in wartime France, where betrayal was an every-day occurrence. Initiation: A Spy Story rapidly builds in pace and has the authenticity of being written by a former intelligence officer. The first of the Walter Berner series of spy fiction. Newly edited and revised in 2019.
