Description

#1 New York Times bestselling author Daniel Silva's celebrated debut novel, The Unlikely Spy, is A ROLLER-COASTER WORLD WAR II ADVENTURE that conjures up memories of the best of Ken Follett and Frederick Forsyth (The Orlando Sentinel).

The Nazis, however, have also chosen an unlikely agent. Catherine Blake is the beautiful widow of a war hero, a hospital volunteer and a Nazi spy under direct orders from Hitler: uncover the Allied plans for D-Day...
