Architect Lucien Bernard accepts a commission that will bring him huge wealth – and maybe a death sentence.He has to design a secret hiding place for a wealthy Jewish man, a space so invisible that even the most determined of Nazi soldiers won’t discover it.

Really good read. Quite a different sort of story about France during the war. Highly recommended.
