France, 1944: Nobody expects Peter Eddy to survive his first commando mission, to retrieve a code book stolen by the Nazis, so his success is rewarded with an even more daunting assignment. Partnered with fellow soldier Jacques Olivier, Eddy must identify which of the three Allied contacts in Calais is a double agent and use the traitor to help implement a strategic Allied diversion that might win the war.

Eddy and Olivier secretly cross the English Channel to confront their suspects one at a time, but what appears to be a clean assignment soon turns disastrous, and a shocking betrayal leaves Eddy in the grip of the Gestapo. With the courageous aid of Olivier and his sister, Genevieve, Eddy evades his captors in a highspeed chase through the streets of Calais.

But as the Allied invasion approaches, treachery in the least likely places leads to fresh graves in the bloodied European soil, and only the power of loyalty and love can transform tragic endings into new beginnings.

    This was an exciting World War II historical fiction story about a relatively inexperienced young LDS spy sent on an undercover mission to France. Great characters, and great questions to ponder about some of the moral implications of war.

    I love this book! I’ve been entertained and educated and kept coming back for more. Love the constant action and twists and turns along the way.
