Can a stolen violin lead secret agent and spy Maggie Hope to a new serial killer terrorizing London? The World War II mystery series from New York Times bestselling author Susan Elia MacNeal continues.
MacNeal, who has proved a master at re-creating both wartime England and Nazi-occupied Paris, is on point again ... As with the previous eight volumes in this consistently entertaining series, MacNeal’s latest effort combines solid sleuthing and fascinating WWII detail with a sensitive look at the psychological turmoil that plagues those under intense pressure.
Set in war-torn London, bestseller MacNeal’s tantalizing ninth Maggie Hope mystery finds Maggie helping conscientious objectors diffuse unexploded bombs ... Vivid descriptions of devastated London and distinctive, emotionally flawed characters enhance a plot that builds to a wicked twist. This enjoyable effort will inspire those new to MacNeal to seek out earlier entries.
