About the Book

rosalind minett writer

Those readers who like a long read now have the three books: Intrusion, Infiltration and Impact in the one volume.

1937-1951 London. In this coming-of-age trilogy, two cousins develop a fateful rivalry as war threatens. Sturdy, well-meaning Billy suffers his own war when the devious Kenneth enters his life. Smaller but older, Kenneth envies Billy’s superior strength and home comforts. The desire for power and territory threatening peace in Europe is mirrored in micro in the Wilson home. The parents turn a blind eye as Kenneth manipulates and bests Billy at every turn. Billy’s secret symbol of power, a Cossack sabre, insidiously permeates the family’s fortunes as adolescence, war and post-war austerity determines how far their rivalry will stretch.
