“She follows Jack to his last known address on the iconic Ridley Road, but she is warned off by her uncle, the gruff Soly Malinovsky and Soly’s wife Nancy.
“Determined to stay on in London, Vivien takes up lodgings with the very traditional Nettie Jones and finds a job at a trendy Soho hair salon run by Barbara. But her world is turned upside down when she discovers that Jack has gone missing while working undercover to infiltrate the neo-Nazi National Socialist Movement, led by Colin Jordan.
“With the backing of the anti-fascist 62 Group led by Soly and Nancy, Vivien decides to go undercover herself to discover what happened to Jack. Will she have the courage to do what is necessary to save Jack and protect her community?”
