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.

Good book spoiled by bad narrator
I pre-ordered this, as I have with all of the author's books. I'm really thinking I should read the book rather than listen to the audiobook. The narrator is poor and creates quite a distraction. I went back to read my reviews of the previous books in the series and I've said this same thing in practically ever review. Maybe one of these days I'll learn.
The story itself was not bad. I found the last third of the book was non-put-down-able. Great suspense and action. The ending is interesting.

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?
I've have enjoyed the prior books in this series. I am having real problems listening to this one. The story is slow to develop with much time spent on small details while other elements in the story seem undeveloped. My mahor issue is the narration which has made this very difficult to listen to.
How did the narrator detract from the book?
Her delivery does not change regardless of the events described. She has a very sing song presentation which makes it difficult to fully engage in the story.
If this book were a movie would you go see it?
