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 ).

"In wartime," Winston Churchill wrote, "truth is so precious that she should always be attended by a bodyguard of lies." For Britain's counterintelligence operations, this meant finding the unlikeliest agents imaginable--including a history professor named Alfred Vicary. Handpicked by Churchill himself, Vicary must stop an unknown spy from uncovering the Allied battle plans for D-Day. The Nazis, however, have also chosen their operative carefully. Posing as a war widow and hospital volunteer, Catherine Blake is under direct orders from Hitler to seal the German victory--no matter what the cost.

"Layers of depth and intrigue...Silva succeeds with panache." -- USA Today
