His weapon is the stiletto, his codename: The Needle.
He is Hitler’s prize undercover agent - a cold and professional killer.
It is 1944 and weeks before D-Day. The Allies are disguising their invasion plans with a phoney armada of ships and planes. Their plan would be ruined if an enemy agent found out... and then The Needle does just that. Hunted by MI5, he leads a murderous trail across Britain to a waiting U-Boat. But he hasn't planned for a storm-battered island, and the remarkable young woman who lives there . . .
Eye of the Needle, an international bestseller, is a heart-racingly exciting tale about the fate of the war resting in the hands of a master spy, his opponent and a brave woman.
‘An absolutely terrific thriller, so pulse-pounding, so ingenious in its plotting and so frighteningly realistic that you simply cannot stop reading’ Publishers Weekly
‘A tense, marvellously detailed suspense thriller based on a solid foundation of fact.’ Sunday Times
