Product Description Amazon.com Review In this debut novel veteran journalist Silva mines the reliable territory of World War II espionage to produce a gripping historically detailed thriller. In early 1944 the Allies were preparing their invasion of Normandy; critical to the invasion's success was an elaborate set of deceptions--from phony radio signals to bogus airfields and barracks--intended to keep Hitler in the dark about when and where the Allied troops would arrive. Catherine Blake is the beautiful ruthless spy who could bring the whole charade crashing down; Alfred Vicary is the brilliant but bumbling professor Churchill has tapped to protect the operation. Along with a teeming cast of other characters real and fictional they bring the chase to a furious and satisfying climax. From The New Yorker The Unlikely Spy is a wartime chronicle in the mold of Robert Harris's Enigma the bestseller of last Christmas and every bit as good; a tense well-crafted piece of story-telling centered on one of the war's greatest often-overlooked secrets - Project Mulberry... Silva brings to life a tale of suspense that spirals its way to an evocative climax. See all Product Description
