Review: The Swiss Courier by Tricia Goyer and Mike Yorkey

**This is a "preview" post - full review coming (hopefully) tomorrow. As sadly seems the norm here lately, I'm behind in my reading and blog tour commitments. I'll get caught up someday soon, I hope (*fingers crossed*).**

The Swiss Courier is proving to be a spectacular read! It's a compulsive page-turner, and so far I'd rank it among the very best World War II fiction I've ever encountered (and since that's by far my favorite time period to study, for me that's saying something!). Full review coming soon - I can't wait to share my full thoughts on this one!


The Swiss Courier
By: Tricia Goyer and Mike Yorkey
Publisher: Revell
ISBN: 978-0-8007-3336-0

About the book:

She’s risking her life to save a man she doesn’t know. But whom can she trust along the way?

It is August 1944 and the Gestapo is mercilessly rounding up suspected enemies of the Third Reich after an attempt on Hitler’s life. Gabi Mueller is a young woman working for the newly formed American Office of Strategic Services (forerunner to the CIA) in Switzerland. When she is asked to put herself in harm’s way to safely “courier” a German scientist who is working on the atomic bomb out of enemy territory, the fate of the world hangs in the balance.

Review:

Full review coming soon!

The cover is great. Speaking of WWII-era books, have you read The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society yet?

Ruth, as the co-author of "The Swiss Courier," it was great to see all the enthusiasm for our World War II-era thriller. Readers have been telling us that we've been keeping them up late to finish the last 50 pages. No one has been able to figure out how "The Swiss Courier" ends yet, so there are some great surprises. Thanks again. Mike Yorkey
