The bestselling and award winning author of Restless and Any Human Heart is on top form with his thrilling and plot twisting new novel Waiting for Sunrise.  

Set in Europe during World War One it follows Lysander Rief, a young English actor, in his escape from a passionate but dangerous love affair in Vienna.  Back in London, with war stirring, Lysander finds himself in moral and financial debt to British Intelligence and is plunged into the dangerous, but thrilling, world of covert operations via the battlefields of France.  With lies and deception all around him, he must discover the key to a secret code which threatens the safety of Britain.
 
Waiting for Sunrise is a highly engrossing read from one of the best storytellers of today.
