Publisher's Summary

Berlin, on the eve of war. Clara Vine, Anglo-German actress and spy, has been recalled to London by British Intelligence to probe reports that the Nazis and the Soviet Union are planning to make a pact.

When Clara investigates the death of a young woman from the Faith and Beauty Society - the elite finishing school for Nazi girls - what she uncovers is something of infinite value to the Nazi regime - and now she herself is in danger.

    "As good as the previous ones"

    I'm hooked on this author and these books. Can't stop listening. The mix of historical fact and fiction tells the tale of pre war Berlin beautifully. Can't recommend highly enough.

    Story
    "This series is a delight."
    Where does Faith and Beauty rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    The Clara Vine series of audiobooks are the best audibooks I have ever listened to.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I particularly liked this kind of historical fiction. Thynne builds this series of novels around historical facts and appears to do so with integrity. The Clara Vine novels bring the harsh realities of living in pre-war Berlin in a way that no other author does.


    Which scene did you most enjoy?

    Clara Vine is a particularly interesting and intriguing character.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I had to stop myself from fininishing it in one sitting, to draw out the pleasure.

    "Great new take on the spy genre"

    I have to echo a reviewer in the U.K. and say I'm getting hooked on this series. This is the second of three I've read and I'm looking forward to the third. The author is the wife of the WW2 spy novelist, Philip Kerr, who I've read and enjoyed, but I'm enjoying these more. There needs to be name for this genre and I think it would be a Cozy Spy book: it has the features we all understand from cozy murders, yet with the political/historical elements one finds in spy novels. I can't go all out with 5 stars because of this and that, but it's definitely very enjoyable listening.
