Paris, 1945. Janine Simonian stands accused of supplying information to the Nazi occupying forces that led to the arrest and torture of several members of the French Resistance - and the brutal murder of her own husband. Fiercely patriotic, and the wife of a Jew, Janine had always been outspoken in her condemnation of the Nazis. Encountering her soon after his arrival in Paris, Abwehr intelligence officer Günter Mai judged her the unlikeliest of recruits for his network of informants. Well versed in the art of identifying potential collaborators, Mai knows all the triggers that motivate them to betray their country - greed, political beliefs, or fear. Janine seems insusceptible... until the Gestapo's reign of terror intensifies, and her children are rounded up for deportation. The Collaborators is a powerful tale of conscience and betrayal that is as shocking as it is moving, posing uncomfortable questions about the priorities of personal and national loyalty in time of war.
