France, 1944: Nobody expects Peter Eddy to survive his first commando mission, to retrieve a code book stolen by the Nazis, so his success is rewarded with an even more daunting assignment. Partnered with fellow soldier Jacques Olivier, Eddy must identify which of the three Allied contacts in Calais is a double agent and use the traitor to help implement a strategic Allied diversion that might win the war. Eddy and Olivier secretly cross the English Channel to confront their suspects one at a time, but what appears to be a clean assignment soon turns disastrous, and a shocking betrayal leaves Eddy in the grip of the Gestapo. With the courageous aid of Olivier and his sister, Genevieve, Eddy evades his captors in a highspeed chase through the streets of Calais. But as the Allied invasion approaches, treachery in the least likely places leads to fresh graves in the bloodied European soil, and only the power of loyalty and love can transform tragic endings into new beginnings.

About the Author
Sowards is a graduate of Moses Lake High School and Brigham Young University. She swam competitively for sixteen years, including while she was in college. She found it more entertaining to think of plot ideas while following the black line up and down the bottom of the pool than having a song in her head that restarted with every flip turn. Sowards currently lives along the Wasatch front with her amazing husband and her adorable twin toddlers. She loves hearing from readers at ALSowards.com or on Facebook or Goodreads.

I thoroughly enjoyed reading "Espionage". It was entertaining, captivating, and just a really good book. The author did a great job with characters who were believable, down to earth, yet filled with personal courage. There were lots of twists and turns and a few surprises. I am certainly looking forward to book two.

The emotion is so real in this novel. I felt as if this really happened and I was horrified with some of the tactics that war criminals used to get what they wanted. War is terrible and we owe our brave warriors much.
Great New Author!

I purchased Espionage by A. L. Sowards this week. I loved it! I couldn’t wait to get home and read. This book took place during WWII and it had enough twists to keep me reading late into the night. I really felt like I got to know the characters and can’t wait to see what happens to them in the next book! This is a great book and I recommend it to EVERYONE. I actually had to buy another copy so my 12 year old could read it also. My 78 year old father is reading it too and likes the WWII action. I appreciate that Espionage is appropriate for all ages to enjoy. I'm so excited about this author! I hope to see more books by A. L. Sowards soon!!
Well written, believable, and thought-provoking

Espionage is a fantastic debut from author A.L. Sowards. It is well written, with believable characters, and an exciting plot line. However, the thing that I appreciated the most about this book was the way it made me think--about war, about courage, about hate, and about forgiveness.
