January 1939. When the British Foreign Minister receives a phone call from Berlin, Amsterdam must be warned. Forces within the Dutch government are working on staging a terrorist attack on their own soil to trigger war with Germany, but is the threat taken seriously and will they prevent mass casualties?
When Celestina is flown from Barcelona to Berlin, she expects anything. Except being assigned to Amsterdam by the Nazis to stage a terrorist attack that will trigger war. Horrified by the idea of working for the enemy and killing civilians, she must choose between her own life or the lives of millions.
Frank has settled in Amsterdam and is making a living as a photographer. He enjoys capturing the city and reporting news for the papers. When an old aquaintance from Barcelona arrives in the city, he is dragged into events that may cost millions of lives. He must figure out what Celestina is up to before he becomes the first victim.
Marleen enjoys being a jazz singer, but the letter from Germany saying she must return sounds like a death sentence. She has two weeks to vanish, find a new life, new identity, new country to live in. Frank may be her ticket out of here, but as they lose control of events, her hope of escape is all but gone.

Gunnar was a young journalist in Iceland. Covering local news bored him and he was desperate to get out of this one-way street to oblivion. As Spain erupted into Civil War, he saw his opportunity, his road to greatness.
Barcelona was a city of colourful propaganda posters and interesting characters. Friendships were forged, they laughed, drank and fought together, but he would have to repay his debt. The price of entry into this war was betraying his friends.
Nothing would be the same after Barcelona burst into flames, on 3 May 1937. Nobody could be trusted, friends turned on each other and survival was the only thing that mattered.
