Publisher's Summary

London, 1940. After years of stealing from the rich and giving to the poor—well, to themselves, anyway—Ellie McDonnell and her family have turned over a new leaf as they help the government’s war effort. It’s true that the straight-laced Major Ramsey didn’t give them much choice, but still, Ellie must admit she doesn’t miss breaking and entering as much as she might have thought. What she does miss is the challenge of unlocking an impossible code and the adrenaline rush that comes from being somewhere she shouldn’t. 

So when Major Ramsey turns up unannounced with another job, she can’t say no. A woman’s body has been found floating in the Thames, with a bracelet locked onto her wrist and a cameo locket attached to it. It’s clear this woman was involved in espionage, but whose side was she on? Who was she reporting to? And who wanted her dead?

Wonderful story

Great story that swept me along and people I liked ,and was Abel to spend time with . There will be another book with the same people . That is exciting because I like the story and want to spend more time in the story. I waited a year for this book , looks like I may wait another year for the next book .

Simple, engaging, enjoyable!

This was a fantastic breather from nonfiction heaviness. Good plot. Fun dialogue w usual wry Brit style. Outstandingly performed by just one narrator. If you liked Mary Higgins Clark back in the day, you’ll love it.
