Each volume in the Collector's Library series has a specially commissioned Afterword, brief biography of the author and further reading list. The Afterword is by leading UK playwright, novelist and eminent Sherlockian, David Stuart Davies.
All that's standing in the way of the Dunbars' divorce is Brian Dunbar's unwillingness to sign the papers. And though his wife, Lieutenant Colonel Anne Dunbar, loves him as madly as she did on their wedding day eleven years ago, their differences--intensified by the pressures of career and family--are irreconcilable.

When a long-lost file lands on Anne's desk, she learns some unexpected ons about love and trust from the remarkable story of a World War I "Hello Girl" telephone operator.
