Why this book you might ask:I read this book some 25 years ago and found it recently on iTunes. I wanted to reread it and needed a book for the Flashback Challenge. Perfect.
My Thoughts: I found this to be just as good to me as it was years ago. This tale of a German spy who found out the D-Day plans and and the hunt go find him before he is able to get back to Germany to warn the High Command was very suspenseful. The way Follett wrote the spy's part was interesting in that I couldn't find it in me to totally hate him. What a great anti-hero. There were no big twists or turns, just a straight forward story. Besides the strong spy story there was a little sizzle and some romance to round it off nicely. At the end I was really emotional for Lucy Rose. She was a strong character who had to go through a lot. A great read.
