When will my order arrive?


Jean and Rebecca, whose parents have died, journey back to France from Brazil - desolate. Rebecca has an on-board romance with an older right-wing Frenchman, Philippe Darnand. Despite Jean's reservations, Rebecca marries Philippe but Philippe, who is viciously right-wing, wants to further his career in the Milice. He gives up Rebecca and her baby to the Nazis. Now Jean, taught to kill by S.O.E. and disdaining restrictions set by the French resistance, is compelled to exact his revenge as an outsider. A ravening grudge bearer, Jean rescues the beautiful Nicole from the Sicherheitspolitzei's clutches in Bergerac and they travel to Paris - a little stop over to bring his plans to fruition. He returns to England under a cloud but his promise to always protect Rebecca eats away at him and in the end, he risks all to keep that promise in an impossible mission deep into enemy-occupied Poland.

About Fredrik Nath

Fred Nath is a full time Neurosurgeon. Fred was born in Sweden and brought up in London and has worked in Liverpool, Aberdeen, Edinburgh and Glasgow in his training (a long, long time ago). He lives in the northeast of England with his teenage daughter, his three sons having grown up and flown the coop. In the last twenty-six years, he has run twenty-five Great North Run half-marathons, trekked Island Peak, to 6000m in Nepal, crossed the highest mountain pass in the world (also in Nepal) [which you can see on You-tube], done a 12,000ft tandem parachute jump and began writing, like John Buchan, "because he ran out of penny-novels to read and felt he should write his own." Fred loves a good story, which is why he writes. To date, he has written five French resistance thrillers, three books in the Galdir series and the first instalment of a four book series 'Amulet' has recently appeared in print - all published by Fingerpress publishers. How does he find time to write? Get up a bit earlier and go to bed a bit later - sleep makes you unproductive! He also loves the Dordogne, French wine and a good family getogether! You can reach him on: http: // or email
