Young widow and mother Valerie Sinclair is a candidate for British Naval Intelligence when she is handpicked for a treacherous assignment and personally approved by Winston Churchill because of the unique way her mind works. After a brutal training program and an elaborate scheme to hide her true identity, she will meet the challenge of her life on Operation GOLDILOCKS, an ultra-secret mission scheduled for launch behind German lines, into Occupied France. Transformed by surgery, and disguised as a French schoolgirl, the purpose of Valerie's mission will be to effectively transfer the secrets of the first Atomic Bomb from German labs, via German and British banking partners, for the postwar benefit of the London Financial District.
To succeed she must avoid a faceless pursuer. Fitting his movements to hers like a hand to a glove, is The Spy, the eerie mysterious figure who haunts her dreams. Moving with relentless resolve, The Spy becomes an uncanny part of the weavings in this startling revelation of international intrigue.
Based on the memoirs of the real life British espionage agent Valerie Sinclair, this is the story of a war for information that affects the national prosperity of England and the United States for years to come.
