The story begins when highly trained USNR pilot Doug Conyers is sent on a mission to Paris and Copenhagen via confidential Presidential orders, and the last thing on his mind was falling in love. A chance meeting with a brilliant research scientist at a Copenhagen Jazz club leads them not only to the love of a lifetime, but on the run of a lifetime. As a scientist at a prestigious Copenhagen research institute, Anna has just unraveled the molecular formula from sulphur water that can revolutionize medicine or wipe out humanity in the wrong hands – a discovery that must be kept secret at all costs. As Nazi Germany invades Denmark and Norway, her sister’s life is compromised and Anna must flee with her secret immediately.
From an action-packed escape on a Swedish freighter carrying atom bomb ‘heavy water’, to hiding in a train filled with the German Army heading towards the lowlands, Doug and Anna finally make it over the Dutch border. However, she is not yet safe. Hidden by the cloister nuns at the chateau, in the outskirts of Paris, in the secret passageway, she hides her discovery only to learn later that those closest to her are betraying her. Fate hangs in the balance, as the Gestapo requisition the chateau. Running out of provisions and becoming increasingly sick, she waits for word from Doug from the United States. Anna wonders if she will make it out alive.
