Two weeks before D-Day, the French Resistance attack a chateau containing a telephone exchange vital to German communications - but the building is heavily guarded and the attack fails disastrously. Flick Clairet, a young British secret agent, proposes a daring new plan: she will parachute into France with an all-woman team known as the 'Jackdaws' and they will penetrate the chateau in disguise. But, unknown to Flick, Rommel has assigned a brilliant, ruthless Intelligence colonel, Dieter Franck, to crush the Resistance. And Dieter is on Flick's trail. From the master storyteller and bestselling author of "Eye of the Needle" and "Code to Zero" comes the new thriller, set against the menacing backdrop of the Second World War and crackling with suspense and action. "Jackdaws" is an irresistible novel of the Resistance and of love, courage and revenge.Read Less

This is one of Ken Follett's best novels. I really enjoyed it.

Good adventure reading
I've read only a few of Ken Follett's books and this is one of my top picks of the few I've read. It is very adventuresome and I love the fact that he chooses women to be the spy gang in this one. This is another book that reads like a movie because a movie couldn't do it justice. There are some graphic scenes but otherwise the book keeps a good pace and is hard to put down. I have loaned it to women and men of different generations and everyone has really enjoyed it. It will keep you interested any place you choose to read it.
