The Swiss Courier

By: Tricia Goyer & Mike Yorkey

This was a very good book packed full of suspense and action. This novel takes place in 1944 during WWII. Gabi Mueller works in Switzerland translating messages as they come in to the office but she also discovers that she has a hidden talent. Joseph Engel is a scientist who is helping the Germans try to create the atomic bomb. Little does he know that his past holds a secret that will put his life in danger. These two are thrown together in an adventure full of terror and near misses as Gabi is asked to risk her life to help Joseph escape the hands of the German Gestapo. Its hard for them to know who can be trusted and who is leading them into a trap. The only thing that made this book kind of hard to read is the German words that are thrown into the story.

I was not sure at first if I would like this book because I am more of a romance reader but once I started this novel I found it hard to put down. I was drawn into the story from the very beginning and it was almost as if I were there with the characters inside the story going right along with them. I would recommend this book to anyone who is looking for a story that is full of action and suspense.
