Two weeks before D-Day, the French Resistance attack a chateau containing a telephone exchange vital to German communications. But the building is heavily guarded, and the attack fails disastrously.
Flick Clairet, a young British secret agent, proposes a daring new plan: she will parachute into France with an all-woman team known as the "Jackdaws", and they will penetrate the chateau in disguise. But, unknown to Flick, Rommel has assigned a brilliant, ruthless Intelligence colonel, Dieter Franck, to crush the Resistance. And Dieter is on Flick's trail.

"Written in Follett's...riveting style and with his penchant for historical detail." (Publishers Weekly)
"Thoroughly entertaining." (Booklist)
This is a great story - it's riveting listening. I couldn't put it down once I started. The narrator is excellent and very easy to listen to. The pace is fast and exciting in the typical Ken Follet fashion. I've listened to 3 of Ken Follets novels on audiobook and this has been the best so far.
Ken Follett can do no wrong in my books. This was an extremely light read, and I enjoyed it. Im a big WW2 fan, and , although predictable, was fun.
I didnt regret the credit to purchase this book.
I figure you can't go wrong with Ken!
