Publisher's Summary

"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.

The Unlikely Spy

I read/listened to this book as a "test" of Daniel Silva. It suffices to say that after this one, I went and read/listened to all of this books in one shot. The strength of this books are their characters are believable, story lines are complex, and most of all, writing is good. I like his mastery of the language and descriptive phrases. I often want to read the same book twice. This book in particular is good for any WWII spy novel fans, since it does a good job mixing real historical events and fiction.

Just as good as the Eye of the Needle.

I had read some of the other reviews and was a little worried when I bought this book. I was not disappointed at all. I found it as good any of Follett's work. The Eye of the needle was a very good book and I found Silva did as well if not better with The Unlikely Spy.

I will listen to this book a second time. The Unlikely Spy is one of Silva's best works.
