A Mystic's daughter flees Moscow on the eve of the Great War.

A French soldier lies wounded on the Western Front.

A German officer veers between loyalty and integrity.

An English courtesan reclines on a sea of books.

Each will make a journey that changes history.



The constellations will force the Mystic's daughter to make an impossible choice. To remain at her

harp as the shadow of war looms again - or join the top-secret Special Operations Executive (SOE).

Babouli to her Sufi father, 'Madeleine' to the Gestapo, a lone mission to Occupied Paris promises to

be the most hazardous of World War Two.



Inspired by real events, Codename: Madeleine is the most unexpected spy story ever told. It teems

with tigers, zeppelins, elephants, U-boats, angels, assassins, chessmen, cyanide, beetles, butterflies

and Rumi. Revolving between Paris, London, Prague, India and Latin America, Codename: Madeleine is a

kaleidoscope of love, war, music, betrayal, poetry and resistance.

“Excellent read.”

The SOE is often not appreciated for its important role in the Second World War, and very rarely do we have a female from an ethnic minority as a war legend. Jameson’s retelling of this extraordinary woman’s life is... More
