"Code Name: Lise is impossible to put down. Suffused with
romance, told with a novelist's eye for page-turning thrills and
the historian's acumen for facts, Loftis brings to colorful life a
hero for our time, Odette Sansom. Like Unbroken and Code
Girls, Odette Sansom's story is epic, intensely personal,
emotionally rich, and hard to forget."
-Doug Stanton, #1 New York Times bestselling author of 12 Strong and In Harm's Way
"An astonishing story of love, survival, and almost unimaginable courage. Code Name: Lise is non-fiction that reads like a thriller and will keep readers riveted."
-Tilar Mazzeo, New York Times bestselling author of Irena's Children
"A true-life thriller...page-turner...Every chapter ends on a cliffhanger...A vivid history of wartime heroism."
"Code Name: Lise is a grand adventure, part thriller, part love story, and full of wonderful details about the tradecraft of wartime espionage and the bravery of unsung heroes. A remarkable achievement that does honor to its subject. I hope someone takes it to the big screen as it has everything."
-Joseph Finder, New York Times bestselling author of The Switch and Judgment
"Larry has a knack for finding untold stories that read more like fiction than fact, and he's done it again with Code Name: Lise. Having grown up reading about the Jedburgh teams - the forerunners of US Special Forces - I found the story riveting, not the least because it's true, and Larry's relentless research makes Odette Sansom's heroics leap off the page, putting her in the pantheon of our own Special Forces heroes."
-Brad Taylor, New York Times bestselling author of Daughter of War
"Loftis delivers a tale of courage, daring, valor-and love-for the ages. Code Name: Lise is the closest history comes to a romance novel."
-Elizabeth Cobbs, New York Times bestselling author of The Hamilton Affair
"Larry Loftis brings the past to life with a brilliantly researched and executed tale of one woman's unparalleled heroism in occupied France during World War II. A riveting true story of love, betrayal and sacrifice, as engaging as any thriller, and not to be missed."
-Mark Greaney, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Mission Critical
"If ever there was a lesson on the impact of one great revolt, this is it. Even the dreaded Gestapo couldn't stop it."
-Salena Zito, bestselling author of The Great Revolt
"As one who has seen combat up close and personal, I can say that what Odette and Peter Churchill went through is on another level. Heroism you'll never forget."
-Sean Parnell, New York Times bestselling author of Outlaw Platoon and Man of War
"Larry Loftis has crafted a true thriller, a highly entertaining account of the most highly decorated spy of WW2. A great read."
-Alex Kershaw, New York Times bestselling author of The First Wave and Avenue of Spies
PRAISE FOR INTO THE LION'S MOUTH
"Gripping ... This one will keep you planted in your reading chair from start to finish."
-Michael Connelly, #1 New York Times bestselling author
