Liberation

by Imogen Kealey

Liberation Synopsis

To the Allies she was a fearless freedom fighter, special operations super spy, a woman ahead of her time. To the Gestapo she was a ghost, a shadow, the most wanted person in the world with a five-million Franc bounty on her head. Her name was Nancy Wake. Now, for the first time, the roots of her legend are told in a thriller about one woman's incredible quest to save the man she loves, turn the tide of the war, and take brutal revenge on those who have wronged her.

Liberation Press Reviews

A blistering, gripping, and absolutely fascinating novel. Set aside plenty of quality time as I was consumed, and read it all in one heady, breathtaking go. * Love Reading * A thrilling debut . . . featuring plenty of espionage and a memorable female lead, this is a cinematic treat for fans of wartime adventure novels * Publishers Weekly * Brims with heart-pounding tension * Sunday Mirror * A bold, blazing account of an astonishing woman in an extraordinary time, by a master storyteller. Vivid, harrowing, engaging, but above all compelling. A rare treat. * Robyn Young * I absolutely raced through this, based on the incredible Nancy Wake, a real-life superhero. An astonishing, heart-thudding and unforgettable story, brilliantly told. * Jill Mansell * The White Mouse is a Resistance heroine of legendary courage, daring and cleverness. Imogen Kealey conjures her rebellious, passionate character with conviction, insight and gritty detail. * Amanda Craig * Imogen Kealey has written a proper page-turning thriller, remarkably based on the true story of one of the Second World War's truly great heroines. * Ben Fergusson * Big on high stakes action . . . exciting * Daily Mail * A fresh, original, breathless thriller. Nancy Wake may be drawn from history but she is a heroine for our times * Erin Kelly * What a story, and Imogen Kealey tells it brilliantly. This is more than a heart-stopping and exciting adventure thriller: Nancy Wake is a heroine for our times, as well as for hers. The most extraordinary thing of all is that in its essentials, the story is true. * Andrew Taylor * Her extraordinary story has been told before, but Kealey uses the freedom of fiction to breathe new life into it . . . exciting and well-written * The Times *
