He'll do anything to save her... even work for the enemy.

August, 1944.

In German-occupied Paris, former schoolteacher Auguste Duchene has stumbled upon an unusual way to survive: he finds missing people.

When he's approached by the French Resistance to locate a missing priest - and a cache of stolen weapons - Duchene initially refuses. But the Resistance offer him no choice. Within hours, he's also blackmailed by a powerful Nazi into searching for a German soldier who is suspected of deserting.

To fail at either task will have deadly consequences for Duchene - and for his daughter Marienne.

So begins a frantic race against time. As forces close in on Paris, Duchene has only 48 hours to locate the missing priest and soldier, or lose the only person he loves.

Please join us for this FrankTALK with A.W. Hammond on Thursday 3 June at 7pm at Carrum Downs Library, as part of the Libraries After Dark initiative. This event is free but bookings are essential as numbers are limited.
