"The best-selling author of The Liberator brings to life the incredible true story of an American doctor in Paris, and his heroic espionage efforts during the Second World War. The leafy Avenue de Foch, one of the most exclusive residential streets in Nazi-occupied France, was Paris's hotbed of daring spies, murderous secret police, amoral informers, and Vichy collaborators. So when American physician Sumner Jackson, who lived with his wife and young son Phillip at Number 11, found himself drawn into the Liberation network of the French resistance, he knew the stakes were impossibly high"--Provided by publisher.

A remarkable story of a family with outstanding courage and compassion. Well researched and reads like a novel.

I concur. My wife is reading it now. Got movie written all over it, if anyone is strong enough to produce it. An indictment of evil and a testament to good.
