Why the four stars? I was unaware when I purchased it that it contained Mormon ideology. While it wasn't a huge deterrent, I felt that at times, the author was trying to get a point across.
I appreciate that the book was clean! It was a fast-paced, interesting story, and if you are at all into WWII spy stuff, I recommend this book. ...more

This book was amazing!!! It starts off with a bang- Peter Eddy's first spy mission into occupied Europe during World War II. From there is keeps going and going. Most of the book takes place during one week, in Calis where he is on his second espionage mission with the help of a man name Jaques and his sister Guineve. This book is not at all what I expected, but even better. It is an easy to follow book, historically related, and mixed in with ...more
