Summary, etc.:
"London. December, 1942. As the Russian army repels German forces from Stalingrad, Maggie Hope, secret agent and spy, takes a break from the Special Operations Executive division to defuse bombs in London. But Maggie herself is like an explosion waiting to happen. Shaken by a recent case, she finds herself living more dangerously--taking more risks than usual, smoking again, drinking gin and riding a motorcycle--and the last thing she wants is to get entangled in another crime. But when she's called upon to look into a stolen Stradivarius, one of the finest violins ever made, Maggie finds the case too alluring to resist. Meanwhile, there's a serial killer on the loose in London and Maggie's skills are in demand. Little does she know that in the process of investigating this dangerous predator, she will come face to face with a new sort of evil...and discover a link between the precious violin and the murders no one could ever have expected"-- Provided by publisher.

    Transplanted American Maggie Hope's life has been a whirlwind since taking the job as Winston Churchill's secretary at the beginning of WWII: code breaking, spying, and catching serial killers have all been part of her remit. Now, in late 1942, she's trying to decompress. No more spying, at least for the moment, but Maggie's idea of chilling out is a little weird: defusing unexploded bombs (UXBs) in blitz-ravaged London. MacNeal, who has proved a master at re-creating both wartime England and Nazi-occupied Paris, is on point again, with white-knuckle accounts of being down in a hole with a UXB: one minute you're there, the next you could be pink mist. For Maggie, though, the next minute she's back in the game, first hunting a stolen Stradivarius violin and then, inevitably, on the trail of another serial killer, this time someone who's targeting conscientious objectors. As with the previous eight volumes in this consistently entertaining series, MacNeal's latest effort combines solid sleuthing and fascinating WWII detail with a sensitive look at the psychological turmoil that plagues those under intense pressure.
