Amanda Davidson's marriage to Carl Himmler, a most handsome and dynamic businessman from Hamburg, is a huge success. Despite his profession as a heavy arms manufacturer, Carl's nature and philosophy of life bear little resemblance to his historic name's sake Heinrich Himmler - the loathsome director of Hitler’s death camps.
For twelve happy years, Amanda looks after her two loving children and her thriving boutique while calming an ever-watchful Jewish father in New York.
But when a serious threat to Carl’s business and his whole family presents itself, Heads of State, police and the secret services face a dilemma fraught with danger whilst everyone's skills are put to the test.
Yet the world is hardly finished with Amanda who is to endure an outrageous attack upon her by the late addition to her brood, a deviant son called Peter. As her remarkable strength of character and will to recover manifests itself, her elder son, Adam, publishes his 'close to home' novel and presents her with a signed copy at a special party in her honour....
A happy ending to a family affair involving change of identity and nail-biting drama.
