In this exciting alternative history novel Nazi Germany is the 1941 victor of World War II and, together with all her enemies occupies the democratic nation of New Zealand. The Occupation forces attempt to win the support of the population with a range of social measures but it quickly becomes clear that collaborate or resist is the stark choice facing each citizen. Initially the Occupation regime seeks to win popular support through post-war prosperity initiatives that include child support payments and encouraging a growth in the farming. However the regime also begin to clamp down on all personal freedoms and impose widespread censorship. Stuart Johnson, a university student, encounters the beautiful Carol Peterson on the cross-harbour ferry. She is accompanied by Hamish Beavis who quickly takes exception to Stuart's obvious interest in Carol. The attraction between Stuart and Carol rapidly develops but Stuart, unaware of the dark secret that she carries, is puzzled by the hold that Hamish appears to have over her. Stuart's strong opposition to the regime develops, as does his growing rivalry with Hamish over the love of Carol. In a series of verbal and physical encounters the two men rapidly develop an intense dislike for each other. However, in spite of her apparent growing attraction to Stuart, Carol continues to maintain a relationship with Hamish. The grip on the New Zealand population continues to grow as the new regime increasingly clamps down on personal and democratic freedoms. Some sections of the population, for a variety of reasons, cooperate and collaborate with their new masters resulting in divided loyalties and confrontation between families and friends. As pressure on the occupied population increases, Carol faces her own pressure from her family that eventually forces her into becoming engaged to Hamish.
