This is just a great read, just what you'd expect from Follett. You wonder how the gals can beat the Gestapo, seems the odds are all stacked against them.... Read Pillars of thr Earth, too. It's one of the best I ever read!

Suspense, drama, excellent plotline. A well told story about female British agents during WW2 just before D-Day. Real page-turner.

I loved this book! Ken Follett never disappoints me, but here, he really stirs the imagination as he follow 6 British women undercover agents working in France just days before the D-Day invation. His images of World War II are so vividly drawn that you can almost picture yourself there. This gives one a great appreciation of the dangers faced by the French underground.

Another one I couldn't read. The typical NY Times read and throw away. Story of personalities that take place in France at end of war.

Ken Follett is so good at writing a book that reaches out and grabs you for an exciting ride until the last page. This book is no different. I really enjoyed this book and reading more about the war effort on the part of the females.

This was a GREAT book; full of intrigue and suspense. I love strong women and this was right up my alley. One that keeps you on the edge of your seat the entire way through... a real page turner. I enjoyed the concept as well. I like all of Follett's WWII spy novels, but this was one of the best.

A Very Entertaining, very cinematic thriller about a ragtag, all-female band of British agents, code-named Jackdaws, sent to blow up a key telephone exchange in France on the eve of D Day... Adventure, Romance, Derring-Do...crowd the pages of what promises to be one of Follett's most popular novels ever.
