HIS MAJESTY'S HOPE
Genre: Mystery/Suspense/Thriller, Mystery, Historical
MacNeal’s Maggie Hope mysteries are as addictive as a BBC miniseries, with the added attraction of a well-paced thriller. It’s not just an action-packed mystery; it is also the story of a family and lovers caught in WWII and one woman’s struggle to find her place in a mixed-up world.
After thwarting a German mission to kidnap Princess Elizabeth, Maggie trains for a mission in Berlin. She will parachute into the city, infiltrate Hitler’s government and stop her mother, spymistress Clara Hess, from poisoning England’s water supply. She‘s hired as a companion to the daughter of a high-ranking Nazi official and meets not only her mother but also her half-sister, who works with the resistance. She also discovers some unsettling things about the men in her life. (Bantam, May, 330 pp., $15.00)
