Norway, April 1940...

The armies of the Third Reich have met with little resistance in their invasion of this neutral country.

While the Allies organise their forces for a counterattack, another drama is being played out, the result of which could have resounding effects on the whole course of the war.

Unknown to all but holders of the highest offices in the British government, a prominent political personality is seriously ill.

Without a successful operation, he will be dead within six months.

Only three surgeons in Europe are capable of performing the operation necessary to save his life. Two of which are German and the third, Dr Didrik Stenersen, is a prisoner in his own country - Norway.

Churchill himself orders the rescue mission to bring Dr Stenerson and his entire medical team to London.

The mission's code name: Operation Valkyrie...

Getting into Norway will be difficult and dangerous - but not as dangerous as getting out.

Spies are lurking around every corner and the German foreign intelligence are on the hunt for a certain red-haired man...

The Valkyrie Directive is a fast-paced thriller about perseverance and survival.
