Summary

His weapon is the stiletto, his codename: The Needle. He is Henry Faber, a coldly professional killer and Germany's most feared deep-cover agent in Britain. His task: to discover the Allies' plans for D-Day and get them to Germany at all costs. It's a task he undertakes with customary relish and ruthlessness - until he encounters Storm Island and a woman named Lucy.

Critic reviews

"A tense, marvellously detailed suspense thriller built on a solid foundation of fact." ( Sunday Times)
"An absolutely terrific thriller, so pulse-pounding, so ingenious in its plotting, and so frighteningly realistic that you simply cannot stop reading." ( Publishers Weekly)

Good story but short

A really well written story that keeps you intrigued throughout. But the main issue is it is effectively a short story. Worth a read though. I did enjoy it.
