Publisher Description

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • For fans of Jacqueline Winspear, Charles Todd, and Anne Perry comes a gripping mystery featuring intrepid spy and code breaker Maggie Hope. This time, the fallout of a deadly plot comes straight to her own front door.
World War II rages on across Europe, but Maggie Hope has finally found a moment of rest on the pastoral coast of western Scotland. Home from an undercover mission in Berlin, she settles down to teach at her old spy training camp, and to heal from scars on both her body and heart. Yet instead of enjoying the quieter pace of life, Maggie is quickly drawn into another web of danger and intrigue. When three ballerinas fall strangely ill in Glasgow—including one of Maggie’s dearest friends—Maggie partners with MI-5 to uncover the truth behind their unusual symptoms. What she finds points to a series of poisonings that may expose shocking government secrets and put countless British lives at stake. But it’s the fight brewing in the Pacific that will forever change the course of the war—and indelibly shape Maggie’s fate.

Inaccurate and poorly edited

A decent read, not up to her prior work. The historical inaccuracies and poor research are very distracting. US naval ranks are constantly misidentified with a sailors rank described as a private and a four star Admiral as a Rear Admiral. Churchill on the night of a Pearl Harbor proclaims Britain lost the Prince of Wales the day before. He refers to Singapore and Malaysia as taken by the Japanese weeks before Pearl Harbor. These are but a few of the incorrect historical and factual background found throughout this work of fiction. Actually, the errors are inexcusable. A decent editor who wasn't sleeping at the switch would never have betrayed an author by printing this. Professionally weak.
