Product Description

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.

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.

Good reading!

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.

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.
