Hunter is a jewel merchant whose crime was actually putting jewels back that had be previously taken unlawfully. He was set up, caught and sentenced. He is also an expert safe-cracker. When a famous and extremely valuable diamond is taken by the Nazis from a friend of Hunters, who is subsequently killed, they are trying to make a deal with a Middle East nation for oil. The SOE wants that diamond, not only to help the British cause, but to thwart the Nazi scheme.
Hunter makes contact with the Resistance who have operatives in place at the Nazi headquarters in Lille. These operatives are ready to help Hunter, aka Jaques Lemay while in France. He meets the widow of his best friend and the operative who was killed for the diamond and will be working with her to accomplish the theft.
As always while reading a World War II spy novel, I am constantly on the edge of my seat waiting for something else to happen throughout the book. The plot opportunities are endless for an author writing about that time in history, especially if it is a work of historical fiction. I enjoyed this book and read it in two sittings.
In a wonderful twisted way Richards’ continues the twisty romantic thriller. Can these people work together? Can they find and steal the diamond successfully before General Dietrick can sell it in return for oil the German Army need? Most importantly can they find love and forgiveness among the dangers?
Even though this is a short book, it still delivers. Richards develops the main characters so that you identify with them and their mission. It is still full of plot twists and turns. The book made an excellent weekend book to read.
I received a copy of this book from NetGalley and Backlit PR in exchange for a fair and honest review
Madeline Bertrand had hated Hunter Smith for two years as his set her husband in a trap. Jean Philippe had worshiped Hunter and didn't think twice about answering his telegram and walked into the Nazi's hands! Now, she was expected to let him helped their resistance to fight the Germans?
Normally I steer away from books set in this time frame, however I was intrigued after the first chapter and didn't want to stop reading! Ms. Richards spins a believable tale that you think you were there in person!!
