July 1917: Joseph Reavley, a chaplain, and his sister
Judith, an ambulance driver, are bone-weary as they
approach the fourth year of the conflict; the peace of the
English countryside seems a world away.
On the Western
Front, the Battle of Passchendaele has begun, and among the
many fatalities from Joseph's regiment is the trusted
commanding officer, who is replaced by a young major whose
pompous incompetence virtually guarantees that many good
soldiers will die needlessly. But soon he, too, is dead -
killed by his own men.
Although Joseph would like to turn a
blind eye, he knows that he must not. Judith, however,
anguished at the prospect of courts-martial and executions
for the twelve men arrested for the crime, has no such
inhibitions and, risking her own life, helps all but one of
the prisoners to escape.
Back in England, Joseph and Judith's brother, Matthew,
continues his desperate pursuit to unmask the sinister
figure known as the Peacemaker - an obsessed genius who has
committed murder and treason in an attempt to stop Britain
from winning the war. As Matthew trails the Peacemaker,
Joseph tracks his escaped comrades through Switzerland and
into enemy territory. His search will lead to a reckoning
pitting courage and honor against the blind machinery of
