....Catherine Pradier is a beautiful and passionate young woman. The fate of the Western Allies in World War II lies in her hands! ...Story is of the most daring gamble of the war. It sweeps the reader deep into the secret, shadow world of the espionage, treachery, and deception that paved the way for D-Day. ------ The Gamble: to make the Germans, even Hitler himself, swallow the greatest lie ever told--that Normandy landings were only a feint, that the real landing would take place three days later near Calais.

NOTE: I have acquired many hardcover books from an estate that were signed/inscribed to a 'Tony Christy'.
They are all from the late 1980's - early 1990's.
It appears that he had a brother connected to the California scene, and acquired the signed books for him.
