Libby Clark and her fellow scientists are working on a special project for the government behind the gates of the Secret City. Everyone is vigilant as watchers are everywhere, willing to turn in friends and acquaintances for the least indiscretion. When Marvin, a member of her discussion group, approaches Libby with a problem, she decides to hear him out. His cousin has been accused of treason. Frannie claims Dr. Hansrote convinced her to aid him in getting information to US spies behind enemy lines. In reality, she was helping him send information to enemy agents. From all appearances, Frannie is an innocent, caught in the web of a skillful manipulator. But unless evidence is found, Frannie will be taken and tried. Soon after she decides to help, Marvin is found, tortured to death. The stakes get higher as the investigation progresses with Libby and her friends potentially being accused of being collaborators.
If you enjoy historical mysteries you should pick up a copy of Diane Fanning's Treason in the Secret City - you won't be disappointed. Fanning's diligent research and brilliant writing bring history to life, making the Libby Clark mysteries an exceptional read. I look forward to reading more of her novels.
I received a copy of Treason in the Secret City from the publisher and netgalley.com in exchange for an honest review.
A rare look into a part of US history most of us don't understand. Fanning opens insight into this little-known area in crafting a tense suspense story.
