The New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of The Huntress
and The Alice Network returns with another heart-stopping World War II
story of three female code breakers at Bletchley Park and the spy they
must root out after the war is over.

1940. As England prepares to
fight the Nazis, three very different women answer the call to
mysterious country estate Bletchley Park, where the best minds in
Britain train to break German military codes. Vivacious debutante Osla
is the girl who has everything-beauty, wealth, and the dashing Prince
Philip of Greece sending her roses-but she burns to prove herself as
more than a society girl, and puts her fluent German to use as a
translator of decoded enemy secrets. Imperious self-made Mab, product of
east-end London poverty, works the legendary codebreaking machines as
she conceals old wounds and looks for a socially advantageous husband.
Both Osla and Mab are quick to see the potential in local village
spinster Beth, whose shyness conceals a brilliant facility with puzzles,
and soon Beth spreads her wings as one of the Park's few female
cryptanalysts. But war, loss, and the impossible pressure of secrecy
will tear the three apart. 1947. As the royal wedding of Princess
Elizabeth and Prince Philip whips post-war Britain into a fever, three
friends-turned-enemies are reunited by a mysterious encrypted
letter--the key to which lies buried in the long-ago betrayal that
destroyed their friendship and left one of them confined to an asylum. A
mysterious traitor has emerged from the shadows of their Bletchley Park
past, and now Osla, Mab, and Beth must resurrect their old alliance and
crack one last code together. But each petal they remove from the rose
code brings danger--and their true enemy--closer...
