Night of the Fox

The New York Times–bestselling author’s “most tingling thriller since The Eagle Has Landed”: An agent poses as a Nazi for a mission on the verge of D-Day (Publishers Weekly).
In May of 1944, shipwrecked American Colonel Hugh Kelso washes up on the shore of Nazi-occupied Jersey—with a valuable secret. As one of the few men with knowledge of the impending invasion of Normandy, Kelso must be rescued at all costs.
Enter Harry Martineau, a covert British operative charged with the dangerous mission of impersonating a Nazi officer to infiltrate Jersey and retrieve—or silence—Colonel Kelso. It is not only their lives that hang in the balance . . .
A riveting World War II thriller, Night of the Fox is “an exceptional tale” from the multimillion-selling author of the Liam Devlin and Sean Dillon series, a master of edge-of-your-seat espionage adventure (Library Journal). It was adapted into a TV film starring George Peppard, John Mills, and Michael York.
