Synopses & Reviews
The second Operation Delphi novel (after 2016’s Expect Trouble) puts clairvoyant WAVES Lt. Livvy Delacourt and her small team of WWII paranormal investigators under direct attack from an undercover German wizard. USO magician Deryk Fergus has been involved with the Nazi group der Mumm for six years when he’s tasked with eliminating the Philadelphia based Watch and performing sabotage at the nearby shipyard which holds supply ships to send to the European theatre. As Livvy and her team investigate the psychic sabotage they must also keep themselves safe from attacks they aren’t always able to recognize or prevent. The interesting premise and engaging escalating plot are hindered by the pedestrian prose. Awkward references to a romantic subplot between Livvy and her commander Trey are stifled by their limited interactions and the rest of the team at Hamilton House are forgettable. Glimpses of an intriguing setup for a sequel may entice fans of Ainsworth’s previous books but new readers are unlikely to continue. (BookLife) " Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC.

Just when US WAVE Livvy Delacourt thinks she and her team of psychic Nazi hunters are ready for whatever The Reich can throw at them, Hitler adds to the mix a spy who also happens to be a wizard. Now dark magic is being used to attack US facilities, and Livvy must match wits with the evil wizard, whose objective is to destroy Operation Delphi and all her team. If she fails to ramp up her psychic powers, she may perish and perhaps cause the US to lose the war with Germany while she s at it. An emotional journey through paranormal realms, Expect Deception is a fast-paced, suspenseful tale of what happens when US Navy psychics pit themselves against their Nazi counterparts."
