Assignment in Brittanyby Helen Macinnes
Hearne looked down at the faded uniform which had once been Corlay's,
He stared at the unfamiliar watch on his wrist. Three hours ago he had stood on English soil. Three hours ago he had been Martin Hearne, British Intelligence agent. Now he was in Nazi-occupied Brittany, posing as Bertrand Corlay, with the Frenchman's life reduced to headings in his memory.

The Queen of Spy Writers returns in a stunning series collecting all of her greatest works! Titan kicks off with Assignment in Brittany; the gripping tale of an undercover operative deep in Nazi-occupied France.

I had already read this book in Chattanooga's public library, and I asked Barnes & Noble to add it to their ebooks, which they did. This book is a classic spy novel, and based on the author's personal experiences in WWII.
