The Song of the Partisans by Kathryn Gauci
From USA TODAY Bestselling author, Kathryn Gauci, comes a gripping and emotional story of wartime France.
“When she closed her eyes, the faces of those she had killed, surfaced like a grotesque scene from a Gothic novel. She had blood on her hands, and it could never be washed away.”
April 1944, Paris: Simone Guillot is ordered to shoot a collaborator before being sent to work with the Resistance in Reims, 150 Km to the east.
Travelling under a new identity, she takes a position as a nurse/companion to the elderly matriarch of a renowned Champagne House, sympathetic to the Resistance.
The Allied invasion of mainland Europe is expected any day. As Frenchmen and women of the Maquis stockpile weapons and explosives in readiness for D-day, the Wehrmacht and Gestapo redouble their efforts to identify the ‘terrorists’ and stamp out the Resistance.
Trained as a saboteur and sniper, Simone is forced to kill again, not once but several times.
When she is assigned one final, near impossible mission, she finds herself trapped in a deadly cat and mouse game with a high-ranking German officer.
Can she kill again – in cold blood his time?
