Hornet Flight by Ken Follet

Sure it's formulaic but it works!

Ken Follett
Ken Follett's Hornet Flight is a rousing World War II adventure full of all of the characters you'd expect in a film noire spy thriller about the Nazis. We have the plucky Englishwoman, spunky high school kids, brave soldiers and a scarred-up German officer who wears the jackboots and everything.

You know how it's going to end even before you start thanks to too much information on the description page but it's still a rollicking fun ride. It hit me just right during these blase winter days.

I rate this book 5 stars out of 5.

This book can be found on Amazon.com here: Hornet Flight.
