by Simon Mawer

In his twelfth novel Simon Mawer returns to Czechoslovakia, 1968. The brief freedom of The Prague Spring has enticed two English students there for the summer and Sam Wareham at the British Embassy and Lenka Konecková, a Czech student, are similarly inspired by the hopes and ideas emerging in the city. But the Red Army is massing on the borders and peace is shattered by an invasion which engulfs the fragile lives of individuals.
