Summary
Lieutenant Lena Stillman has been left, nearly alone, on her code-breaking mission in remote Alaska. World War II has been over for a month, but due to crimes committed a lifetime ago, Lena is still under the control of the powerful Miss Maggie. Shaken by her role in the disappearance of Corporal Link Hughes--and by her own misjudgment of his character--Lena yearns for an opportunity to redeem them both. Then she receives a shocking message containing Link's potential location: Siam. Embarking on a clandestine rescue mission to Bangkok, Lena is reunited with shadows from her past--including loyal friend Byron who is eager to escape his safe, dull life and the attractive yet dangerous "William Yardly." As personal and political allegiances shift in the postwar maelstrom, it seems impossible to know who is good or bad, innocent or culpable and whether they are motivated by love or revenge
