D-Day is approaching. They don't know where or when, but the Germans know it'll be soon, and for Felicity Flick Clariet, the stakes have never been higher. A senior agent in the ranks of the Special Operations Executive (SOE) responsible for sabotage, Flick has survived to become one of Britain's most effective operatives in Northern France. She knows that the Germans' ability to thwart the Allied attack depends upon their lines of communications, and in the days before the invasion, no target is of greater strategic importance than the largest telephone exchange in Europe.

But when Flick and her Resistance leader husband try a direct, head-on assault, her world turns upside down. Her group destroyed, her husband missing, her superiors unsure of her, Flick has one last chance at the target, but the challenge is nearly impossible. The new plan requires an all-woman team, none of them professionals, to be trained within days. Codenamed the Jackdaws, they will attempt to infiltrate the exchange under the noses of the Germans, but the Germans are waiting for them and have plans of their own.

Filled with powerful storytelling, unforgettable characters, and authentic detail that have become his hallmarks, Jackdaws is Ken Follett writing at the height of his powers. Download and start listening now!

    " While the writing might be a bit clunky and cliche, Jackdaws is a rollicking good time. Tightly paced and just pure entertainment. Like others have said, it is basically a female dirty (half) dozen. "

    " A pageturner. Good thriller with WWII as the backdrop. "

    " I'd call this another classic Follett adventure. Well-researched, well-written and full of twists and turns to keep you guessing--for the most part--until the end. He creates an interesting cast of diverse characters that drive the story forward. I hope he continues writing in the genre, because I'm totally enjoying the WWII-themed adventures. "
