Synopsis

Jackdaws is an irresistible novel of the French Resistance, love, courage and revenge set in the Second War War.

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 The Pillars of the Earth comes this exciting thriller, set against the menacing backdrop of the Second World War and crackling with suspense and action.
