Jackdaws is an irresistible novel of the Resistance and of love, courage and revenge. Two weeks before D-Day, the French Resistance attacks a chateau containing a telephone exchange vital to German communications – but the building is heavily guarded and the attack fails disastrously. Flick Clairet, a young British secret agent, proposes a daring new plan: she will parachute into France with an all-woman team known as the 'Jackdaws' and they will penetrate the chateau in disguise. But, unknown to Flick, Rommel has assigned a brilliant, ruthless Intelligence colonel, Dieter Franck, to crush the Resistance. And Dieter is on Flick's trail . . . From Ken Follett, the master storyteller and bestselling author of Eye of the Needle and Code to Zero comes this exciting thriller, set against the menacing backdrop of the Second World War and crackling with suspense and action.

An old flame. A nagging request? Why is it so difficult to return these valuable gems? The cost may be too great for this gentle samaritan. Nudged into a criminal enclave, a nurse risks all to survive uncertain perils. Marie's unnerved by a former lover's request to locate an ex girlfriend, she reasons he still has love for her and this is why he entrusted her with this simple task! Why not do it himself? He has contracted terminal cancer and the physical difficulties are overwhelming. It's become a matter of urgency as Marie investigates matters. Her questions stir up some unwanted attention from an unsavoury group of criminals. She's now "a person of interest" a target for their brutality.
