Praise

Praise for Jackdaws

“The book’s celebration of uncommon courage and unlikely heroes couldn’t be better timed . . . a distaff Dirty Dozen.” —People

“A very entertaining, very cinematic thriller about a ragtag, all-female band of British agents, code-named Jackdaws, sent to blow up a key telephone exchange in France on the eve of D day . . . adventure, romance, derring-do. . . . [Jackdaws] promises to be one of Follett’s most popular novels ever.” —Publishers Weekly

“Compelling reading . . . great entertainment.” —The Baltimore Sun

“Deeply satisfying.” —Entertainment Weekly

“Suspenseful, gripping.” —New York Post

“With its vivid characters, suspense, patriotism, and examples of supreme bravery, Jackdaws is a fitting tribute to the women of World War II.” —The Orlando Sentinel

“Cleverly plotted. . . . The characters are sharply drawn and fully realized [and] the pace is rapid-fire.” —Minneapolis Star Tribune

“A sort of distaff dirty (half) dozen. They don’t come any tougher, smarter, braver, or for that matter, deadlier than Major Felicity (call her ‘Flick’) Clairet. Quintessentially female and sexy as all get out, she kills without compunction if that’s the way the mission goes.” —Kirkus Reviews

“Carried off with the kind of galvanic skill that was the hallmark of Follett’s early books . . . a memorable, complex heroine.” —Publishing News

“For fans of the sixties movie The Dirty Dozen, this could be called The Perfumed Six. . . . It’s certainly pleasant to have the main character be female.” —The Buffalo News

“[Follett] is dead on-target . . . updating that World War II workhorse in which a gang of misfits goes behind Nazi lines to do the impossible . . . thoroughly entertaining.” —Booklist

“Follett delivers one of his most entertaining thrillers.” —The Denver Post
