The cover has a quote from Daily Mirror – ‘A don’t dare-put-me-down book’ and that is exactly what it is. I picked this book up at a book fair at a bargain price and it proved to be a steal. I loved everything about the book – well, almost.

The story is based in Nazi-occupied Britain and it is a perfect amalgamation of fiction and true events which make the book all the more enjoyable. It revolves around a central character – Nick Penny, who, after 4 months in a prisoner-of-war camp returns to his native place as an interpreter for the Germans. As the story progresses, he comes in touch with The Resistance which is an underground movement against the Nazis. One thing leads to another and Nick along with his childhood friends- Roy and Matty Cordington finds himself as a part of the movement. The characters are very relatable and one can almost feel what it would have been to live during those days. The story involves everything from Love to Corruption, Patriotism to Treachery with many more twists and turns.

What I loved about the book is that it is well researched, the narration is impressive, the characters are well developed and the alternate end at the last is wonderfully placed. Also, the cover of this book instantly draws you towards it. However, I also felt that the book could have been 40-45 pages smaller and with so many twist one might get confused somewhere in between.

To summarize my review, I loved this book and will look to read more from the author. It is a good piece of fiction with a perfect amount of true events. I will recommend this book to anyone who is willing to go for a roller coaster ride.

My Rating – 4.5/5
