Review quote

"It has all the ingredients that have made this such an exciting series to read - great characters putting their lives on the line for the greater good, tight plotting, great action scenes, realistic dialogue and as much tension as any best-selling adult thriller" Book Zone for Boys "Plenty of twists and turns in this suspense filled story with so many heart stopping moments there is hardly time to draw breath between them. Full of atmosphere and so vividly told you feel you share the friends' danger ... Unputdownable" Primary Times "This is exactly the sort of book to appeal to an 11-year-old child who loves a nail-biting adventure and is interested in how the French Resistance operated in World War 2. Highly recommended" Historical Novel Societyshow more
