Synopses & Reviews
When Simon and Lydia West discover two skeletons in a strange underground building in their garden, their peaceful lives in a Somerset village are thrown into turmoil. So are their neighbours, the Fitzhughs, who years before lost their daughter in Nazi-dominated Berlin. Did she have links with one of the young men in the garden? Did she too have to die? Across several decades, a tortuous path of love, revenge, political brutality and fragile friendships weaves its way in the plot of this pacey three part thriller. Wartime Florence... peacetime Bath... Poole Harbour... Bavaria and Bonn... the drama swings back and forth as hard-forged loyalties, extremist views and irrepressible demands for power rise to the surface. Old bones tell many stories. The Curtain Falls is one of the finest, revealing a Britain - and a Germany - now changed for ever.
