Nevertheless, I like this series, the Maggie Hope mysteries. Maggie is an endearing character, braver than I think I ever would have been. The other books have been set on English soil and weren't as gritty. So in some ways I live vicariously--though it is not a life I would want to have lived--through her, as I once did through Nancy Drew. These are no Nancy Drew mysteries though. And there is no mystery as to who the villains, some of whom recur through the series, are.
The series will appeal to those who are interested in modern historical fiction, who wonder how women decided to become spies and contributed to the war effort during World War 2. And how those who survived may have felt. As the author herself says, it is a work of fiction but I was amazed at the amount of research she did for the book as detailed in her Afterword.
If you like period stories (WWII), intrigue, strong women and danger, this is the book for you.

However, McNeal researches her topics well and is definitely a force to be counted on in the future.
