You know you've really loved a book when reading any other less than stellar Amazon reviews of it makes you furious on the author's behalf! I was completely gripped by this enthralling, excellently researched novel and loved that it featured fictionalised versions of real people from that time - Vera Atkins, Buckmaster, Delacourt... The English Agent is absolutely brilliant and I highly recommend it. If I could, I'd give it ten stars.
(PS - I don't know the author, dear Amazon, so please allow this review to be posted!)

Clare Harvey writes in a intriguing style, using frequent changes in scene and time to weave together multiple themes whilst maintaining pace.
Not only is this a vey well crafted story, it is also a fascinating insight into the world of the SOE, a fledgling organisation that seems at once both courageous and amateurish to our modern expectations.
Well worth a read.

After reading 'The Gunner Girl', I couldn't wait for the new book to come out. The English Agent didn't disappoint. I love a wartime story and Clare Harvey writes in a style that suits the era. She can draw you into the story very early, making you picture the scenes in your head. That's good writing for you. A well told story of the SOE, and one I can recommend.
Well worth a read. When is the film coming out??

The English Agent is a compelling read .the story line and characters are believable and there is a good twist at the end. I also enjoyed the epilogue at the end to tie up part of the storyline.

The book had a good structure and realistic setting. It was exciting and poignant in places too.
The style of writing annoyed me slightly with its overly liberal peppering of metaphors and similes but that's a personal opinion. I like a few but there were far too many for me.
However the story had authenticity and I would recommend it.

Very interesting historical read. However, I did at times find the way the book was written confusing & had to sometimes reread chunks, hence the lower rating.

I loved this book, read it back to back with the Gunner Girl. Lots happening and quite a few surprises. I am hoping there will be a third.
