The Ghosts of Paris
A thrilling tale of courage and secrets set in postwar Paris, in which a search for a missing husband puts journalist Billie Walker on a collision course with an underground network of Nazi criminals.
It’s 1947. The world continues to grapple with the fallout of the Second World War, and former war reporter Billie Walker is finding her feet as an investigator.
