A great read. Kept your interest until the end. Suspenseful until the end.
A well devised plot full of action set in Europe during the "phony war" in the late '30s. Intricate plotting full of surprises criss-crossing the continent with very authentic settings.
Riveting historical thriller. Not for the faint of heart.
