The government’s efforts to protect the nation’s art collection from destruction during the second World War is the backdrop to Rhian Tracey’s latest spy story.

Ned has accompanied his mother to the village of Manod in Wales, both engaged in the care of hundreds of priceless masterpieces transported there from the nation’s galleries. To keep the artworks safe, they’ll need to win the hearts and minds of locals, while simultaneously keeping word from spreading out beyond the village, especially when it seems there’s a spy in their midst.

Tracey skilfully creates a sense of fear and suspicion as Ned is left to carry out their war work without his mum and, with old friends and new at his side, there’s a real sense of excitement and adventure. Other aspects of 1940s life are touched on too, from the plight of refugees to the agony of having family members missing in action. It all reaches a thrilling climax on a desperate journey to London with no-one sure who to trust.

This is book two in the Bletchley Park series and another intriguing and satisfying bit of historical fiction.
