“Top notch WWII historical fiction. The story weaves an intensely personal story against the backdrop of espionage and war.” *****
“This book held my interest from page one until the end. I love the way Colin Falconer can bring the 40s to life. You forget that the people you are so worried about are characters in a book. They become real, and you care what happens to them. This is the magic of Colin Falconer. Don’t miss out on any of his books.” *****
