Provence. April 1939. English couple, Peter and Suzy, are living in idyllic isolation; far, it seems from the rumblings of the oncoming war.
Their peace is suddenly shattered by a stranger from Peter’s past who unearths secrets from a buried and hidden life, which throws Suzy’s world into turmoil. In a world where the Third Reich is emerging as a dangerous regime, deceit, lies and subterfuge make this fast paced thriller a dark and nail-biting rollercoaster.
Starring Brian Capron (Coronation Street, Where the Heart Is, Grange Hill, Celebrity Masterchef), Corrinne Wicks (Doctors,Emmerdale), Gary Turner (Emmerdale, Hollyoaks), Lara Lemon (Off Piste, The Pugilist) and Andrew Fettes (London’s Burning, Auton).
Prolific writer, Brian Clemens, is best known for The Avengers, The Professionals, The Persuaders, Thriller and Bergerac. His films include See No Evil, Highlander, Dr Jekyll & Sister Hyde and Captain Kronos: Vampire Hunter. Brian also wrote numerous plays including Sherlock Holmes & The Ripper Murders, Murder Weapon, Shock! and The Devil at Midnight.
