Publisher's Summary

It is June 1941 and Denmark is under German occupation. On the rocky coast of Denmark, two brothers, Harald and Arne Olufsen, starkly different in nature, are straining against the rigid confines imposed by their austere, elderly parents and trying to find their own way in life. Meanwhile, a network of MI6 spies is attempting to decipher an encrypted Luftwaffe radio signal that mentions the new Freya-Gerät: a rudimentary form of German radar equipment.

Arne's relationship with Hermia Mount, an MI6 analyst, draws him into underground politics, putting him under surveillance by the Danish security forces and by one man in particular who has a personal motive to see Arne fall.

It is only a matter of time before the brothers' paths converge in a united effort to overcome the Nazis. A disused Hornet Moth biplane is their only means of getting a vital message to the British.

What the Critics Say

"Best-selling Welsh author Follett has made a career out of the WWII suspense thriller...and he hits the mark again with this dramatic and tragic tale of amateur spies pursued by Nazi collaborators in occupied Denmark in 1941." (Publishers Weekly)

    "Intelligent page turner"

    In true Ken Follett style, this book is a well researched page turner, that accurately invokes the resistance efforts of World War II, and draws you into its struggle. In an age where Intelligence plays an increasing role in solving the worlds travails, this is a timely reminder of its importance and the worldwide implications its accuracy (or lack-thereof) offers.

    While it didn't go into the depth of character or storyline I was hoping for, its length (4.5 hours) was ideal for an audio book.
