Plot Synopsis

Based on the novel by William Boyd. In 1976 England, Ruth Gilmartin is shocked to learn her mother Sally has been living a double life. She is not the respectable English housewife Sally Gilmartin, but in fact Eva Delectorskaya, a spy for the British Secret Service who has been on the run for thirty years. Her mother slowly reveals her Eva story beginning in 1939 Paris. Lucas Romer, a mysteriously alluring Englishman, recruits Eva, a beautiful Russian emigree, for the British Secret. As Romer trains Eva to become the perfect spy, their love affair begins. When a crucial mission collapses in the USA and Eva finds herself in fatal jeopardy, she knows she has no option but to run and hide forever. No one can be trusted. But now Sally/Eva yearns to end her years of restless watching and waiting. Thirty years later, the only man who can bring this about is her former lover and spymaster, Lucas Romer, now Baron Mansfield of Hampton Cleeve and the only person she can call on for help is her daughter, Ruth. Before Ruth can come to terms with mother's double life, she must now find her betrayer before it's too late.
