Code Name: Lise
by Larry Loftis
The year is 1942 when Odette Sansommakes the painful decision to leave her entire life hehind and become an SOE agent to aid Britain and her beloved homeland, France. After grueling training and five failed landing attempts, she finally arrives in occupied France to to begin her mission. It is here that she meets her commanding officer, Captain Peter Churchill.
As they complete mission after mission, their forged bond of trust gives way to love. All the while, they are hunted by Germany's top spy-catcher, the relentless Hugo Bleicher. Bleicher finally succeeds in catching them and they are sent to Paris's Fresnes Prison, and then to concentration camps. In captivity, Peter and Odette are starved, beaten, and tortured, but never give up the whereabouts of their colleagues, their hope, or their love for each other.
Code Name: Lise seamlessly weaves together a touching romance with a harrowing cat-and-mouse chase. It is not only a moving love story and heart-pounding thriller, it's a portrait of courage, resilience, and patriotism by two of World War II's most fearless, decorated operatives.
