A coming of age female spy story: intern to double agent.
Traitors is an intimate epic - a multi-season spy thriller that delves into a seismic moment in global politics with all the shock and intensity of the world today.
The Second World War is over and Britain, America and Russia are all vying for control of the new world order. Meet 22-year-old aristocrat Feef Symonds, who is thrust into the heart of battle, despite having all the life experience of a 1945 millennial. Trained to spy in wartime, but never given the chance to test her skills, Feef lands a job in the British civil service. In the aftermath of a shock Socialist election victory, fanatical American agent Rowe targets her to spy on her own country. Her mission: to root out suspected Soviet penetration of the British government. Gutsy and determined, Feef rises to the challenge. But when she disovers that her predecessor was likely murdered, and the danger of discovery mounts, Feef is left wondering if she's made a disastrous mistake.
