It is September 1940 and Evelyn Murdoch, a translator from the Postal Censorship department, is uprooted from her home in Woking and transferred to Hollywood . . .
She’s to assist a mysterious British agent in his attempts to outwit the Los Angeles German delegation and boost the British propaganda war effort. At first bewildered by the glamorous excesses of this strange new world, she’s gradually seduced by the sunlight, orange groves and clever, fast-talking men. But her new technicolor ending threatens to slip from her grasp.
