Set in the farmland and forests of northeastern France, the French freedom fighters and their Allied special service comrades fight a 'cat and mouse' battle against the Germans. The suspected presence of French-collaborators adds to the risk of exposure and death.

This book is truly one that a reader will not be able to put down until the shocking closing scene is revealed.

I will be looking for more writing from this skillful author.
