NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER

For fans of Jacqueline Winspear, Laurie R. King, and Anne Perry, whip-smart heroine Maggie Hope returns to embark on a clandestine mission behind enemy lines where no one can be trusted, and even the smallest indiscretion can be deadly.

World War II has finally come home to Britain, but it takes more than nightly air raids to rattle intrepid spy and expert code breaker Maggie Hope. After serving as a secret agent to protect Princess Elizabeth at Windsor Castle, Maggie is now an elite member of the Special Operations Executive—a black ops organization designed to aid the British effort abroad—and her first assignment sends her straight into Nazi-controlled Berlin, the very heart of the German war machine. Relying on her quick wit and keen instincts, Maggie infiltrates the highest level of Berlin society, gathering information to pass on to London headquarters. But the secrets she unveils will expose a darker, more dangerous side of the war—and of her own past.

“You’ll be [Maggie Hope’s] loyal subject, ready to follow her wherever she goes.”—O: The Oprah Magazine

Review:

"Contrivances weaken MacNeal's third Maggie Hope mystery set during WWII (after 2012's Princess Elizabeth's Spy). Maggie, who began the series as secretary to Winston Churchill, has evolved by 1941 into a top agent for Britain's Special Operations Executive. At the request of Churchill himself, she embarks on a risky mission as 'the first woman dropped behind enemy lines' since the start of the war. Besides delivering a radio part to a resistance group in Berlin, she must try to plant a bug at the home of Commandant Clara Hess, the German intelligence officer responsible for the nefarious Nazi plot in the previous book. That Hope keeps secret from the S.O.E. director her special connection to Hess adds an element of soap opera. A light spy thriller with thin characterizations and situations that never realize their full dramatic potential. Agent: Victoria Skurnick, Levine Greenberg Literary."
