At just 19, Kurt Mueller had never expected to fall in love, least of all with a girl who was his enemy. As a pilot with the famed Jagdgeschwader 26 Fighter squadron based in France, Kurt had been looking forward to his first mission. That mission had come to an abrupt end when he had bailed out over Southern England in the summer of 1940.
Now he was alone, with little prospect of return to France. His impulsive intervention to save a local farmers wife from a rapist had elevated him to local hero status. When a German double agent provides him with fake Identity papers, he feels secure. However it soon becomes clear that the Germans want something in return.
Before long, Kurt is embroiled in a world of espionage-counter espionage, murder, and betrayal. He gets tangled up with a beautiful blonde killer with a hatred for the English, whose murderous actions bring unwelcome attention from MI5 agents.
When the expected invasion of Britain is postponed and then cancelled Kurt's usefulness to the spy ring is questioned. And he finds himself desperate to stay one step ahead of both sides as events threaten to spiral out of control.
The White Silk Scarf is a fast moving thriller set against the background of Wartime Britain. It is a story where the dividing lines between right and wrong, good, and evil have become blurred. It is also the story of a trusting and naïve 17 year old girl and a dashing young fighter pilot who fall in love at the worst possible time and the worst possible location.
