Couldn't put it down!,
This review is from: Jackdaws (Paperback)
I bought this 'on spec' having never read any of Ken Follett's novels before. However, I was drawn to it as it is largely set around Reims in France, an area I love. Briefly, the main character Flick is an operative with SOE during the final days of World War 2, when D-day is looming. She is charged with destroying a key German communications centre, with the aim of disrupting the Nazis' response to the Allied invasion.
I won't give too much more away, and some may argue it's a predictable yarn, but I loved it. The action is pretty fast paced and Follett creates an evocative picture of wartime France. I couldn't put it down and read it in 24 hours over Christmas, much to the frustration of my family!
