The One Man - Andrew Gross

Nathan Blum has escaped from his homeland of Poland in the middle of the war, made his way to the US and is working for the Intellegence dept in Washington when he receives an urgent request.  He has the skills needed, to go back to rescue a man who may be able to change the trajectory of the war - the only problem is that man has been taken to Auschwitz.

Andrew Gross has given a new twist to this world war two thriller.  Although at moments, I thought it was pushed it a bit too far and became a bit unbelievable it still was a good read, and at moments I had to put it down, not wanting to know what was next and it may have even put a tear in my eye for a few minutes. 4/5

Most spy thrillers are at least a little beyond reality but then we don't read fiction for reality. I'm glad it was entertaining and a good read.
