it was amazing
Read in June, 2012

It is WW 2, the Germans are in France--Paris is a haunted town. Into this maelstrom comes a young woman who is a British spy. The author has written about the story of British women spies who undergo a grueling training and then are air lifted to France to work with the underground. He has selected one anonymous women to tell the story of these spies. Of the 39 women spies, 12 were murdered and others died of illness. The author lifts the reader into this bizarre time and makes the reader one of the spies. I felt the tension, the courage, the breathless moments when she is followed and so much more. Trapeze is indeed a high wire breathless act.
