First published in For adults

THE Girl Who Fell From The Sky by Simon Mawer is published in hardback by Little, Brown, priced £16.99. Available now.

Man Booker Prize-shortlisted author Simon Mawer doesn't disappoint with his latest spy novel about a young woman plucked from her desk job at the Women's Auxiliary Air Force to train for a secret Second World War mission.

Marian Sutro's fluency in French is one draw for her unnamed recruiters, but her ability to easily tackle exercises in hand-to-hand combat, as well as staying cool and inventing a cover story, mean she is picked to go into occupied France to help the resistance.

She's faced with the enemy, love and betrayal - but will she make it back home alive?

Mawer's thriller is nerve-wracking and tense, while its twists and turns leave question marks until the very last page.

8/10
