In June of 1940, ahead of the Germans marching into Paris, Rudolf and Aleece Bamberger, a young German-French Jewish couple flee to Africa to wait out the war where they become embroiled in intrigue and espionage. With spy-thriller plotting, To Live Another Day vividly re-creates their attempt to unsuccessfully distance themselves from the pervasive skullduggery of Axis intelligence operatives in the vast Portuguese neutral harbor of Lourenco Marques, a strategic but colonial backwater situated at the forefront of Indian Ocean shipping lanes.
