Based on the stirring true story, this is Andrew Gross' follow-up to the riveting historical thriller "The One Man." A richly-woven story probing the limits of heroism, sacrifice, and determination, this novel portrays a hero who must weigh duty against his heart in order to singlehandedly end the one threat that could alter the course of the war.

I loved this book. The story is based on true events. Maybe, for some, it is a difficult read, but it is an outstanding book based on historical WWII events. Andrew Gross has so many great books. If you didn't like this one, try any of his others.

Couldn’t get past page 15 due to language. Too bad. Plot sounded great

Since I seldom read war stories I was amazed to stay interested enough in the story details to keep reading. Glad I did.

For a fan of Ambler, Greene, Maugham, Le Carre, Furst and Steinhauer, I found "The Saboteur" to be a very pale imitation of greater espionage novels. Character development is weak... dialogue is unrealistic... and the melodramatic plot devices are ridiculously predictable (I actually laughed out loud at some of the twists and turns awkwardly inserted into this real life story). Try reading the giants of this genre.

Lack of character development, flat dialogue and predictable. Reads like a YA title.
