Summary

A series of baffling murders among a group of imprisoned agents threatens the outcome of World War II in this chilling mystery from the New York Times best-selling author of Mr. Churchill’s Secretary. 

World War II is raging, and former spy Maggie Hope knows too much.  

She knows what the British government is willing to do to keep its secrets.  

She knows the real location of the planned invasion of France.  

She knows who’s lying. She knows who the double-crossers are. She knows exactly who is sending agents to their deaths.  

These are the reasons Maggie is isolated on a remote Scottish island, in a prison known as Killoch Castle, out of contact with friends and family.  

Then one of her fellow inmates drops dead in the middle of his after-dinner drink - and he’s only the first. As victims fall one by one, Maggie will have to call upon all her wits and skills to escape - not just certain death... but certain murder.  

For what’s the most important thing Maggie Hope knows?  

She must survive.

Terrible Narration!

I have loved reading all the Maggie Hope books. I lasted 10 minutes listening. Pitiful.

Like an old fashioned Agatha Christie

Take off on a classic style murder mystery with spies and the War thrown in for good measure. Susan Duerdin’s performance was exceptional (especially her Churchill).

Best one yet?

I read the whole series finishing just in time to listen to this addition when it was released. I think it might be my favorite yet! I am now sad to have to wait another year for the next one. It was different than the previous novels, being much more a mystery and taking cues from classic Agatha Christie. The social justice themes were a little lighter in this book than previously in the series as well, as well as coinciding historical events.

I don't understand the hate for this narrator. She does a fine job. I actually thought the narrator for the first book, Mr. Churchill's Secretary was hard to listen to/understand and was glad that a new narrator was picked up for the rest of them.

Excellent Of Course

I have now read every one of these and hope there will be many more. Excellent writer with many surprises even for me. I couldn't put it down hardly at all. I just had to know how it ended.
