France, 1940. One British soldier tries to find his way home.
But with an ever-threatening enemy closing in on his tail, will he be able to get away?
Second Lieutenant Alfie Lewis, a newly commissioned officer in Britain’s Royal Tank Regiment enjoys a dull start to the Second World War. Spending his days with his comrades, enjoying the countryside and the French way of life, he begins to forget that a war could be a matter of hours away.
But when a reconnaissance operation descends into chaos, Alfie is forced into a continuous downward spiral, sending him into a long journey of evasion, deception and sheer luck.
The Germans are closing in on young Lieutenant Lewis and, before too long; he has no weapon, money or friends to speak of as he continues his journey through occupied France.
Can Alfie make it out alive? If he does, will he be executed by his own country?
The Evader is the first in the new, action-packed, Alfie Lewis thriller series from war fiction author Thomas Wood.
