Verity’s plane, piloted by her best friend, Maddie, just crashed in Nazi-occupied France. Verity, a secret agent, escapes the crash only to be arrested by the Gestapo for looking the wrong way as she crossed the street. What follow is her story and confession traded to the Nazis for clothing and a few weeks of life. Laced in her story are details of her place of holding and the detail her allies need to do their job.
With strong characters and a suspenseful, well-written plot, this book is impossible to put down and will leave you turning pages. An amazing tale of friendship, love, and espionage, readers who like books about spies, adventure, and courage will enjoy reading this book. MS, HS. ESSENTIAL.
