Just because one day, out of curiosity, I happened to walk back from my evening round via the main road, and a woman named Anna Petrova crossed my path...In the tense, uncertain days before World War Two, a female doctor in Londons East End helps the injured caught up in rioting between Fascists and Communists.

But the authorities suspect her actions, and before long, she finds herself imprisoned—with devastating consequences.An engaging thriller, an historical novel, and a thought-provoking meditation on how fate can taint us ...
