In the fifth year of conflict, the master plan for the invasion of Hitler’s Channel stronghold is the Allies’ greatest secret. National security demands it doesn’t fall into enemy hands. So when Colonel Hugh Kelso is pulled from the sea off German-occupied Jersey in April 1944, a major crisis erupts.
Because Kelso is still alive and knows the exact details of the imminent invasion, to ensure the success of their offensive, the Allies launch a suicidal mission to rescue the Colonel...or silence him forever.

Too many shortcuts & too much suspension of disbelief to maintain what should have been a fantastic novel. But when otherwise intelligent people make too many obviously poor decision and things are too often resolved simply to "tie things up", it lost steam for me.
