An award-winning WWII series inspired by the real wartime Special Operations Executive (SOE).
Book 1: Dogfight
Where it all begins! Nowhere is safe…
“Looking back, I’m sure of only one thing. Our lives, however long or short, are decided by just a handful of days. Not ordinary days, but momentous days when our own small worlds change for ever. I call them ‘crossroads of fate’, and we have to choose which direction to turn, …. that’s the rule of life, and that’s life’s adventure. My name is Finn Gunnersen, and this is my story. If you have the courage, take a deep breath and follow me. And if you do, take heed of this warning, for one day it may apply to you too:
When escaping from your enemies, make sure you don’t run into the arms of even more dangerous ‘friends’ – Finn Gunnersen, December 1940
Norway, a country invaded by the Nazis. Finn Gunnersen & best friend, Loki Larson, are determined to fight back. Joining the Resistance, they risk arrest, torture and execution. They also don’t know who to trust. When vital secrets fall into their hands and the enemy is in hot pursuit, they must escape. But to succeed they face their greatest challenge – how to steal an enemy plane and fly it to freedom.

Book 2: Death Ray
Our heroes’ first official mission! France, January 1941
The Second World War is raging and Britain is staring at defeat. Intelligence indicates that the Nazis have built a deadly weapon on the French coast. Could a death ray really exist? There’s only one way to find out – to steal it. Finn, Loki and Freya are fully trained agents with Special Ops. Officially they don’t exist – they’re perfect for this secret and dangerous mission.
Failure is not an option…
Inspired by the true story of one of the war’s most amazing raids.

Book 3: Wolf Squadron
This time it’s personal… Holland, May 1941
“Have you ever wished for the seemingly impossible? Ever wanted something so much that it hurts inside, maybe even keeps you awake at night? I have, and it nearly got me killed. All it took was a glimmer of hope. It grew so powerful, so all-consuming, that I believed I could succeed against impossible odds. For once, throwing caution to the wind seemed best. Others called it reckless.
A courageous young Dutch girl once said to me that a life without hopes and dreams is no life at all. Her name was Marieke. They were her final words to me. Looking back, I think she was right.
– Finn Gunnersen, June 1941
A traitor has struck at the heart of Special Ops, jeopardising the entire Dutch Resistance network. British aircrew are trapped behind enemy lines and an important double agent stranded. Secret agents, Finn, Loki and Freya must go into action once again. For Finn, with his father missing in action, presumed dead, this mission is more than critical… It’s personal.
A story inspired by the darkest episode in the history of the ‘real’ Special Operations Executive.

Book 4: Dead or Alive
Paris – November 1941, let the hunt begin…
A rogue British agent has vanished with a suitcase full of cash and a head full of secrets. Have Britain’s defences been exposed? Special Ops must act fast. Finn, Loki and Freya head for the dark and sinister streets of Nazi occupied Paris. Their orders are simple: Bring the agent back – Dead or Alive.
“…Plenty of twists and turns in this suspense-filled story with so many heart stopping moments there is hardly time to draw breath between them. Full of atmosphere and so vividly told you feel you share the friends’ danger. An unputdownable read.” – P. Times (Star Read)
