Friend or Foe is a gripping World War 2 story from Britain's best-loved children's author, Michael Morpurgo. Evacuated from London, David and Tucky feel like the war is a long way away from their new life in the countryside. Then one night the skyline of the moor is lit up with gun flashes, and the distant crump of bombing miles away brings the war back to them and shatters their new-found peace.
It seems as though fate has directed every major crossroads of Adam Macdonald's life, and today is no exception. While doing some soul searching on a remote beach on the west coast of Scotland, he has a chance encounter with a young woman named Kay, who will change the course of his life forever. Adam is a retired SAS soldier, and the work Kay is carrying out for the British Secret Service piques his interest.
