Review

The story line is tough but fascinating - a thriller. The spy is an SOE agent and as you read you find it hard to believe what she is writing. Then her story stops and her friend, the pilot, takes over and suddenly everything falls into place. The way the book is written makes you feel like you are part of this secret and frightening world.
