MacLean is a master story teller with intimate knowledge of the military. His writing is fast paced with a great detail that does not bough down the story line. His twists are like gentle waves.
The twists and turns just seem part of the story as its natural progression. Mallory and his team are well characterized. This reader liked and cared about them. Often I caught myself holding my breath as I read the book.
They take the Germans' uniforms and escape, but leave Franklin behind so he can get medical attention. Franklin is injected with the truth drug scopolamine by Sessler and gives up the false "information", as Mallory had hoped.
As a result, German units are deployed away from the guns and in the direction of the supposed "invasion" point.
While making final preparations, Miller discovers that most of his explosives have been sabotaged and deduces that Anna is the saboteur.
Not only is she the saboteur, but she can speak, and was never tortured by the Nazis; instead, she agreed to become an informer in exchange for her release. She pleads that she was coerced by the Germans into treachery, but while Mallory and Miller argue over her fate, complicated by Mallory's feelings for Anna, Maria shoots her dead. The team splits up. Mallory and Miller go for the guns, while Stavros and Pappadimos are to create a distraction in the city; Maria and Brown are assigned to steal a boat for their escape.
Mallory and Miller make their way into the heavily fortified gun emplacements. Locking the main entrance behind them -- which sets off an alarm alerting the Germans to their presence -- Mallory and Miller set obvious explosives on the guns and hide more below an elevator leading to the guns. The Germans finally cut through the thick emplacement doors, but Mallory and Miller make their escape by diving into the sea.
Despite Miller's inability to swim, they make it to the stolen boat, but learn that Pappadimos and Brown have been killed.
Stavros is wounded and has difficulty swimming, but Mallory manages to pull him in. The destroyers appear on schedule.
