Summary, etc.:
In the snowbound city of Kiev, wry and bookish history student Mila Pavlichenko organizes her life around her library job and her young son, but Hitler's invasion of Russia sends her on a different path. Given a rifle and sent to join the fight, Mila must forge herself from studious girl to deadly sniper, a lethal hunter of Nazis known as Lady Death. When news of her three hundredth kill makes her a national heroine, Mila finds herself torn from the bloody battlefields of the eastern front and sent to America on a goodwill tour. Still reeling from war wounds and devastated by loss, Mila finds herself isolated and lonely in the glittering world of Washington, DC, until an unexpected friendship with First Lady Eleanor Roosevelt and an even more unexpected connection with a silent fellow sniper offer the possibility of happiness. But when an old enemy from Mila's past joins forces with a deadly new foe lurking in the shadows, Lady Death finds herself battling her own demons and enemy bullets in the deadliest duel of her life.

    *Starred Review* Don't Miss! This phrase takes on numerous meanings in Quinn's much-anticipated latest historical novel, another well-researched, thrilling tale of an unsung female hero. Lyudmila Mila Pavlichenko's life as a WWII Soviet sniper—history's most successful female sniper—makes for an edge-of-your-seat story. After Hitler invades the Soviet Union, Mila, a history student and library researcher, finds her path in life drastically altered and chooses to join the Red Army, putting her marksmanship training to good use. Over time Mila becomes Lady Death, a well-known Nazi hunter. A reluctant war hero, Mila later finds herself on an American goodwill tour. Enter President Roosevelt and First Lady Eleanor Roosevelt; a strong friendship is formed between these two strong women that lasts for many years. This detailed, fast-paced story is narrated by Maarleveld, who also narrated Quinn's previous three books. Long-time Quinn readers will feel right at home in the comfort of Maarleveld's nuanced voice. Mila is brought to life by this accomplished narration. An audiobook that runs at just under 13 hours flies by with a sprinkling of dry humor in an otherwise weighty story. Quinn's following is so strong that readers will be lining up for her latest book and will be well-rewarded in this narration. Copyright 2022 Booklist Reviews.
