The Spy is a thrilling historical espionage story by the internationally bestselling author Andrew Gross.

"Overwhelming, immersive, suspenseful" Lee Child


It is 1943, and the Nazis' stranglehold over Europe is starting to loosen. In a corner of Norway, work is underway at a remote mountain factory to alter that course . . .


Kurt Nordstrum is a courageous fighter who has lost everything. His fiancée. His unit. His cause. When Kurt learns of the Nazis' atomic research in his homeland, he teams up with a group of patriotic fighters, driven by one goal: to disrupt activity at the heavily guarded factory.


Nordstrum must pull off the impossible if his team is to succeed. But in doing so, he must put the safety of one person at risk - the one he sees a life with. How far is he prepared to go, and how much is he willing to sacrifice?

The Spy was previously published as The Saboteur.


"Tension permeates the pages even for readers who know the historical outcome. A terrific story filled with tension and surprises right to the end. That's two World War II winners in a row for Gross." Kirkus Review

"This spine-chilling historical novel is a tribute to ordinary European people who fought the Nazis and Fascists. Andrew Gross is a formidable storyteller who weaves history with heroism and writes an unforgettable story." Washington Book Review
