Don’t miss the thrilling new novel from Kate Quinn, The Briar Club, coming July 9th!

"...compulsively readable historical fiction…[a] powerful novel about unusual women facing sometimes insurmountable odds with grace, grit, love and tenacity.” - Kristin Hannah, The Washington Post 

Named one of best books of the year by Marie Claire and Bookbub

“If you enjoyed “The Tattooist of Auschwitz,” read “The Huntress,” by Kate Quinn." The Washington Post

From the author of the New York Times and USA Today bestselling novel, THE ALICE NETWORK, comes another fascinating historical novel about a battle-haunted English journalist and a Russian female bomber pilot who join forces to track the Huntress, a Nazi war criminal gone to ground in America.

In the aftermath of war, the hunter becomes the hunted…

Bold and fearless, Nina Markova always dreamed of flying. When the Nazis attack the Soviet Union, she risks everything to join the legendary Night Witches, an all-female night bomber regiment wreaking havoc on the invading Germans. When she is stranded behind enemy lines, Nina becomes the prey of a lethal Nazi murderess known as the Huntress, and only Nina’s bravery and cunning will keep her alive.

Transformed by the horrors he witnessed from Omaha Beach to the Nuremberg Trials, British war correspondent Ian Graham has become a Nazi hunter. Yet one target eludes him: a vicious predator known as the Huntress. To find her, the fierce, disciplined investigator joins forces with the only witness to escape the Huntress alive: the brazen, cocksure Nina. But a shared secret could derail their mission unless Ian and Nina force themselves to confront it.

Growing up in post-war Boston, seventeen-year-old Jordan McBride is determined to become a photographer. When her long-widowed father unexpectedly comes homes with a new fiancée, Jordan is thrilled. But there is something disconcerting about the soft-spoken German widow. Certain that danger is lurking, Jordan begins to delve into her new stepmother’s past—only to discover that there are mysteries buried deep in her family . . . secrets that may threaten all Jordan holds dear.

In this immersive, heart-wrenching story, Kate Quinn illuminates the consequences of war on individual lives, and the price we pay to seek justice and truth.

Excellent Read

This is right up there with other great historical fiction of WWII, such as The Nightingale, All The Light We Cannot See, the Alice Network. Story line rolls out in captivating manner. The characters have depth. You know the author here has demonstrated the skill of pulling in historical truths. If there is weakness to book...One of the romantic relationships only seems plausible. This is my one criticism. (Always tricky). Couldn’t put the book down. Please note.....forgot to add....not as well written as The Nightingale and relationships are too predictable

The Huntress is once again a superb read!

This was the second book by Kate Quin I read and once again I found them hard to put down. I love historical fiction and the amazing women she writes about. I find their lives very interesting and their exploits are amazing feats of survival which I find hard to resist. I highly recommend any of her books. I just keep grabbing up the next one available and have thoroughly enjoyed reading them all.
