Book Description1937. London faces war as ruthless Hitler threatens Europe. Meeting manipulative Cousin Kenneth, young Billy's war begins. A fateful rivalry is born, only to climax years later . . . A crossover trilogy.
Lonely Billy's excitement at learning that his relatives have moved to live nearby soon turns to dismay. The frail and artistic Kenneth is hideously devious, Uncle Frank is an outright bully while Billy's parents only see Kenneth's porcelain looks, not his darker soul. The same emotions that enable Hitler's rise - envy over strength, desire for new territory - now ferment in the Wilson home.
Emotionally neglected by parents, Billy is thrilled to have the warm support of his father's friend, Mr Durban. When he secretly sets eyes on Mr Durban's precious Cossack sabre, Billy comforts himself by imagining he owns it and has its power.
As war becomes a reality, Billy is evacuated and Kenneth sets out to invade Billy's emotional space. The sabre becomes an icon that sustains Billy through the hardships, but is it destined to damage as well as protect?
