Of all the desperate women in German-occupied Paris, Gabriela Reyes is the least likely to scratch out her survival as a whore for a Gestapo agent. After fascists murdered her mother and brother and tortured her father in an insane asylum, she hates the Germans as much as she fears them. But when she discovers the man responsible for destroying her family, she decides to become his mistress to try to free her father and avenge her family.

But Gabriela's sudden appearance as Colonel Hoekman's mistress jeopardizes Helmut's careful plans. Now he must decide: will he abandon his plans, or will he sacrifice yet another woman to the German war machine? The Red Rooster is a complete novel of about 350 book pages.

Meet the Author

I've trekked across the Sahara on a camel, ridden an elephant through a tiger preserve in Southeast Asia, eaten fried guinea pig, and been licked on the head by a skunk. In a previous stage of life I programmed nuclear war simulations, smuggled refugees out of a war zone, and milked cobras for their venom. I speak Spanish and French and grew up in a religious community in the desert.

    Good read.

    A fast moving plot with rather typical characters found in historical fiction: a strong female protagonist , a handsome war time German entrepreneur playing both sides, and the evil officer with a sadistic love of torture. The historcal setting creates a satisfying backdrop for the rather stereotypical plot and characters. The theme involving the lenghts one will go to survive is carefully integrated into the lives of the characters and provides a unifying thread .

    Good read

    The characters were easy to get caught up in and root for or against. The writing was effortless and a joy to follow. The book was a great value, 850 pages of intrique. This author is one to watch.

    I really liked this book.  I didn't like the characters so much

    I really liked this book.  I didn't like the characters so much at first but they grew and changed and by the end I liked them a lot.  And the evil ones I despised.  I thought the story was very good and it seemed to me that  it could have been a true story rather than fiction.  I would recommend this book  for people who want to remember how awful world war II Nazi Germany was.

    I would like to see Barnes & Noble add whether books are first or third person.
    I do not like first person books and when I purchase one in Nook, I am stuck when I discover it is now what I wanted.

    Fast paced plot with creative twists, this book will be difficul

    Fast paced plot with creative twists, this book will be difficult to put down.  Historically accurate, the side plot showed how difficult life in occupied France was for the torn citizens.  Survival is a tough road, the choice made are not always the ones people would make during times of prosperity and peace.  Wallace's novel gives a good feel for how people made do in the worst of times.
    I will absolutely read more from this author.
