To the Allies she was a fearless freedom fighter, special operations super spy, a remarkable woman ahead of her time leading, at her height, 7000 fighters. To the Gestapo she was a ghost, a shadow, the most wanted person in the world with a five-million Franc bounty on her head.
Her name was Nancy Wake. Born in New Zealand and raised in Australia, she ran away to New York at the age of 16, then on to London, before training with SOW and fighting with the French Resistance.
Now, for the first time, the roots of her legend are told in a thriller about one woman's incredible quest to save the man she loves, turn the tide of the war, and take brutal revenge on those who have wronged her.
