From America's preeminent spy novelist (The New York Times) comes a fast-
paced, mesmerizing thriller of the French resistance fighters working
secretly and bravely to defeat Hitler. Occupied Paris, 1942. Just before he
dies, a man being chased by the Gestapo hands off a strange-looking
document to the unsuspecting novelist Paul Ricard. It looks like a
blueprint of a part for a military weapon, one that might have important
information for the Allied forces. Ricard realizes he must try to get the
diagram into the hands of members of the resistance network. As Ricard
finds himself drawn deeper and deeper into anti-Nazi efforts and
increasingly dangerous espionage assignments, he travels to Germany and
along the escape routes of underground resistance safe houses to spy on
Nazi maneuvers. When he meets the mysterious and beautiful Leila, a
professional spy, they begin to work together to get crucial information
out of France and into the hands of the Allied forces in London.
