Code name “Jay Bee” stood for Josephine Butler, the only woman in Churchill’s top-secret “Circle of 12” elite spies. With a photographic memory, impeccable French, karate training and a look-alike cousin who could double for her, Jay Bee carried out more than 50 missions in enemy-occupied France. Diana Bishop’s reading captures Jay Bee’s sang-froid on missions fraught with danger and import. The story of German ruthlessness and atrocity and Gallic tenacity and courage is made more compelling by Bishop’s understated delivery. As Jay Bee, Bishop engages us in exploits that far surpass those of James Bond--and they actually happened. J.H.L. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: JAN 97]
