Don’t waste your time or money on this, there are far better books about Vera Atkins and the female SOE agents. Changing names and accents does little to disguise that this is merely a copy of far more accurate and better written stories.
I'm sorry to say these things matter to me, and errors like this spoiled my enjoyment of what was probably a good read.
For a start we had some ludicrous plot-lines. We’re to believe that a captured member of the SOE, who was captured by the Gestapo, interrogated, imprisoned for weeks and then put on a train for a camp was still able to conceal a grenade the size of an egg! Maybe she kept it in her handbag..!! Not to mention the high ranking Nazi War Criminal who kept hold of a key to his Safety Deposit Box. I realise these were necessary to get the plot to its conclusion, but they were totally unbelievable.
Whilst I’m on the subject, the author (and her publishing team) really need to brush up in their accuracy: we had a couple - in the 1940s - discussing a trip across the Atlantic on the QEII. If the author is struggling to see what’s wrong with this I’ll make it simple .... Queen Elizabeth II didn’t come to the throne until 1952, so hard to imagine a ship named after a monarch who didn’t exist at that point (the QEII wasn’t built until the 1960s). I know Ms Jennoff is American bit that’s just sloppy writing.
The book follows three women agents from different backgrounds brought together through their enrolment in the SEO. Following training they are deployed into their special operation missions across Paris. They are to be under cover operators for London in Nazi occupied Paris. That is, until their roles are jeopardised and their lives threatened when one of their operation transmitters is intercepted by the Germans.
A most exciting story of heroism and strength.
