Sometimes the most desperate struggles take place far from the battlefield, and what happens in secret can change the course of history.
Victory is close at hand, but freedom remains frustratingly just beyond the grasp of German physicist Dr. Kristopher Lehrer, Resistance fighter Michel, and the remaining members of the team sent by the Allies—Captain Matt Bryant, Sergeant Ken Lowe, and Dr. Zhou Liang—as they fight to keep the atomic plans from the Nazis. The team reaches France and connects with members of Michel’s French Resistance cell in Normandy. Allied troops are poised to liberate France, and rescue is supposedly at hand. However, Kristopher is no longer sure the information he carries in his memory is safe with either side.
When Standartenführer Holm and his men finally catch up with their prey, the team is left with few options. With a traitor in their midst, who can they trust? Kristopher realizes he must become something he is not in order to save the man he loves. Death is biding his time, and sacrifices must be made for any of them to have the futures they want.
Review: I am at a loss for words for this book. It was brilliantly written. Kristopher and Michel evade capture at every turn while at the same time finding out they have traitor in their midst.
Heart-stopping, heart-breaking at times and dangerous this story is the continuation from the previous books. Kristopher will do anything to save Michel. I found it touching the love these two felt for one another and was cheering them on as they progressed.
The resistance as well as allies are helping in Michel and Kristopher’s journey. There are twists and turns that riveted me and I found myself sitting on the edge of my seat awaiting the outcome.
