|Summary, etc.:||"American-born spy and code-breaker extraordinaire Maggie Hope secretly navigates Nazi-occupied France to find two brave women during the darkest days of World War II in the latest novel in this New York Times bestselling series--"a treat for WWII buffs and mystery lovers alike." (Booklist, on The Prime Minister's Secret Agent) Maggie Hope has come a long way since serving as a typist for Winston Churchill. Now she's working undercover for the Special Operations Executive in the elegant but eerily silent city of Paris, where SS officers prowl the streets in their Mercedes and the Ritz is draped with swastika banners. Walking among the enemy is tense and terrifying, and even though she's disguised in chic Chanel, Maggie can't help longing for home. But her missions come first. Maggie's half sister, Elise, has disappeared after being saved from a concentration camp, and Maggie is desperate to find her--that is, if Elise even wants to be found. Equally urgent, Churchill is planning the Allied invasion of France, and SOE agent Erica Calvert has been captured, the whereabouts of her vital research regarding Normandy unknown. Maggie must risk her life to penetrate powerful circles and employ all her talents for deception and spycraft to root out a traitor, find her sister, and locate the reports crucial to planning D-Day in a deadly game of wits with the Nazi intelligence elite. "You'll be [Maggie Hope's] loyal subject, ready to follow her wherever she goes."--O: The Oprah Magazine"--|

Entries in the WWII-era Maggie Hope series range from traditional mysteries to spy stories; this seventh installment is firmly in the latter category. In the spring of 1942, Maggieâa math crackerjack who's risen in the ranks of Britain's Special Operations Executive (SOE)âis in Paris posing as an Irish bride-to-be shopping for a trousseau. In truth, she's searching for fellow SOE agent Erica Calvert, whose recent radio transmissions have been puzzling, and for Erica's half-sister, Elise Hess, a member of the Resistance. As British spy services wait for Calvert's soil samples to help determine where the Allies will invade France, a mole is revealing the inner workings of the SOE to the Nazis, endangering individual lives and more. MacNeal vividly portrays Paris during the German occupation, contrasting resisters with collaborators, as personified by anti-Semite Coco Chanel, who befriends Maggie while they both stay at the Ritz and takes her to the ballet and Maxim's, where the flow of food and drink belies the city's shortages. With its riveting plot and cliff-hanger finish, this is a solid addition to a series as well researched as it is entertaining. Copyright 2017 Booklist Reviews.
