Book-signing at the Cleeve Bookshop, 18th February

Mandy Robotham will be returning to the Cleeve Bookshop at 11.00 am on Saturday 18th February and will be signing copies of her new novel, 'The War Pianist'.  This is the next gripping and heart-breaking WWII historical fiction novel from Mandy.

A 'war pianist' was a person who operates or controls a radio transmitter - often in code.

Below is a little teaser for the book!

July, 1940 Blitz-ridden London: Marnie Fern's life is torn apart when her grandfather is killed in an air raid. But once she discovers that he'd been working undercover as a radio operative - or pianist - for the Dutch resistance, Marnie knows she must complete his mission - no matter the cost...

Nazi-occupied Amsterdam: At the other end of the wireless, fellow pianist Corrie Bakker is caught in a dangerous game of cat-and-mouse as she desperately tries to keep her loved ones out of the line of fire - even if it means sacrificing herself... Bound together by the invisible wires of their radios, the two women lead parallel lives in their home cities, as both are betrayed by those they trust the most. But when the Nazis close in on one of them, only the other can save her...

Two cities. Two spies. Which woman survives?

The War Pianist is published on February 16th - To reserve a copy of the War Pianist just message the shop at
