'No one lives for ever. But the truth survives us all' Kate Murray is deeply troubled. In front of her lies a dead man, a stranger who only minutes before had approached her wanting to tell her about a mystery, a long-forgotten murder. The crime was old, he'd told her, but still deserving of justice. Soon Kate is caught up in a dangerous whirlwind of events that takes her back into her grandmother's mysterious war-time past and across the Atlantic as she tries to retrace the dead man's footsteps. Finding out the truth is not so simple, however, as only a few people are still alive who know the story...and Kate soon realises that her questions are putting their lives in danger. Stalked by an unknown and sinister enemy, she must use her tough journalistic instinct to find the answers from the past - before she has to say goodbye to her future.

If you like Mary Stewart or Rosemunde Pilcher you will enjoy this book very much.

This is the first Susanna Kearsley I've read. It won't be the last. The subject matter around WWII always appeals. Her style is reminiscent of Mary Stuart with hints of Nevil Shute and Hammond Innes for added flavour.. All the intrigue and the travel with the story going to the links of the past with the present were very well handled as Kate delves into the secrets, never talked about in her family; what her grandmother did during the war. Most informative and enjoyable.

Kate Murray, a Canadian reporter on location covering a murder trial in London, is suddenly approached by an elderly man who offers to tell her about another murder that occurred many years ago. Oddly, he also asks after her grandmother. Tragically, only moments after offering Kate his card and beginning to walk away, he is struck by a passing car. An investigator by nature, Kate resolves to uncover further details about what the man was trying to tell her, but before long she realizes that there is someone else out there who doesn't want any of it to come to light.

I selected this book because I'm lately in the middle of a Susanna Kearsley binge. It is somewhat different, however, from her other works, and I realized later that it was originally published under a pseudonym, perhaps for that reason. The big reveal at the climax was unsatisfyingly disappointing, though I can't quite put my finger on why. All in all, was moderately enjoyable, but thrillers aren't typically my thing.

I like World War Two period history, so this book was really interesting and had detail about Camp X that was attached to the story. It has SK's trademark time travel, mystery, history theme, but lots of suspense as well. I recommend it!
