It is 1969, 'Make love not war' is now the world's battle cry as the Anglo-German hunt to capture handsome but emotionally vulnerable widower Karl Driesler begins. First into the fray is Ilse Zopf, his wartime fiancée; the English bloodhounds are the wild women of Herefordshire, Sarah Carter and Audrey Kellet.
In the summer of 1968 a wedding reunites Karl and Katherine Driesler’s entire family in Herefordshire, but there is a spectre at the feast in the form of Karl’s illegitimate son, Siegfried. His boyhood friend and neo-Nazi, Gustav Halstrup, forces him into a lethal game of bluff involving everyone he knows. Only Siegfried knows the truth of his actions, which have devastating consequences.
The sequel to "Love for a German Prisoner", this novel sees Karl and Katherine, happily married and living in Herefordshire, until his former lover, Ilse, turns to him for help with their son. Having been taught to despise his father, Siegfried's behaviour leads to an increasingly bloody chain of events.
