Another Historical Thriller with Maggie doing her war part 27 April 2014
By Harold Wolf - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I've read all of the "Maggie Hope Mystery" series (now up to 4) and recommend all of them. This large print should be on every public library's LP shelf. World War 2 fiction that's page-turning.
An absorbing thriller. Susan Elia MacNeal returns Maggie Hope to the upper level world of British WWII home front mystery, drama, and suspense. This time, after serving so well as "Mr. Churchill's Secretary" (1st novel), the Prime Minister personally suggests her for MI-5 training. That's a Brit home front spy force. Although she falters in her physical capabilities during boot camp, she's engaged as a math teacher for THE Princess. At the same time she's ordered to ferret danger and espionage within the walls of Windsor Castle (& dungeons).

MacNeal writes as though she's a Brit survivor of WW2. (Photo says too young.) She's a Sherlock Holmette, of sorts; or should that be a James Bondette? Personally she hooked me in chapter two. I could almost hear Colin Firth stuttering his dialogue as father/King Geo VI. The story reminded me somewhat of two great shows, "Upstairs, Downstairs" and the newer "Downton Abbey." Maggie lives in Windsor with the elitist of the elite, and all of the help. You read how the two British classes related. Superbly written.

The novel picks up some of the first Maggie book characters, but it still can be a stand-alone read. I recommend both, however, each short on romance--packed in action. In "Princess Elizabeth's Spy", a many threaded story begins in Nov. 1940 and is fast-paced all the way to Christmas Day, including assassination, kidnapping, & war action unprecedented. Inside Windsor, on U-246...but the story doesn't end there. Readers get two slugs to the "oh-my-gosh!" gut before the last page.
