9788497593304: Alto riesgo / Jackdaws (Spanish Edition)

Una acción trepidante, una misión de alto riesgo protagonizada por seis valientes mujeres como agentes encubiertos durante la Segunda Guerra Mundial.

El día D se acerca. Todavía no se sabe dónde ni cuándo, pero los alemanes están convencidos de que será pronto. Felicity Clariet, Flick, es una de las agentes más valiosas de la unidad encargada de las operaciones de sabotaje que opera en el norte de Francia. A Flick le consta que el éxito del desembarco aliado depende de que las líneas de comunicación con Berlín no funcionen. Y es en Sainte-Cécile, cerca de Reims, donde se encuentra el mayor centro de comunicaciones de la Francia ocupada, alojado en un antiguo castillo del siglo XVII. En estos momentos ese siniestro castillo constituye el objetivo de mayor importancia estratégica.

Cuando Flick intenta un asalto directo, la operación fracasa estrepitosamente. Su grupo resulta destruido, sus superiores empiezan a dudar de ella. Sólo le resta una última oportunidad para cumplir la misión. El nuevo plan requiere un grupo exclusivamente femenino y no profesional, que debe ser reclutado y entrenado en cuestión de días. Deben intentar infiltrarse en el castillo a la vista de los nazis, aunque hay muchas cosas que Flick desconoce, secretos en las filas de los alemanes, entre los miembros de su equipo, secretos que guardan las personas en quienes ella más confía.

Reseña:
«Una de las más populares novelas de Ken Follett.»
Publishers Weekly


ENGLISH DESCRIPTION
D-Day is approaching. They don’t know where or when, but the Germans know it’ll be soon, and for Felicity Flick” Clariet, the stakes have never been higher. A senior agent in the ranks of the Special Operations Executive (SOE) responsible for sabotage, Flick has survived to become one of Britain’s most effective operatives in Northern France. She knows that the Germans’ ability to thwart the Allied attack depends upon their lines of communications, and in the days before the invasion no target is of greater strategic importance than the largest telephone exchange in Europe.
But when Flick and her Resistance-leader husband try a direct, head-on assault that goes horribly wrong, her world turns upside down. Her group destroyed, her husband missing, her superiors unsure of her, her own confidence badly shaken, she has one last chance at the target, but the challenge, once daunting, is now near impossible. The new plan requires an all-woman team, none of them professionals, to be assembled and trained within days. Code-named the Jackdaws, they will attempt to infiltrate the exchange under the noses of the Germans but the Germans are waiting for them now and have plans of their own. There are secrets Flick does not know secrets within the German ranks, secrets among her hastily recruited team, secrets among those she trusts the most. And as the hours tick down to the point of no return, most daunting of all, there are secrets within herself. . . .
Filled with the powerful storytelling, unforgettable characters, and authentic detail that have become his hallmarks, Jackdaws is Ken Follett writing at the height of his powers.
