Lucien Bernard is trying to survive during the war, in German occupied Paris. Approached to by a wealthy industrialist to make a hiding room for a hidden Jew, he is asked to do this in order to get a commission to design a large factory. Not sure if he should help at the beginning, we watch him change and enjoy the challenge of outwitting the Germans.
I did enjoy this book, although I must say the torture scenes were a bit gruesome for my sensitive stomach, the story kept me going for some time.. I am sure that somebody will be picking this one up to make a movie. 4/5
