Synopsis from Goodreads:
World War II has finally came home to Britain, but it takes more than nightly air raids to rattle intrepid spy and expert code breaker Maggie Hope. After serving as a secret agent to protect Princess Elizabeth at Windsor Castle, Maggie is now an elite member of the Special Operations Executive--a black ops organization designed to aid the British effort abroad--and her first assignment sends her straight into Nazi-controlled Berlin, the very heart of the German war machine. Relying on her quick wit and keen instincts, Maggie infiltrates the highest level of Berlin society, gathering information to pass on to London headquarters. But the secrets she unveils will expose a darker, more dangerous side of the war--and of her own past.
I loved the main cast of this novel. Not only were they well developed and easy to like, but they stood for what they believed in against all odds. Although this is the 3rd novel in the series, MacNeal develops the characters in such a way that you get to know them in and of this novel itself.
This was my first novel by this author, and by default, my first in this series. I thoroughly enjoyed her writing style and will be looking further into her work in the future.
