A gripping read with 1940’s London brought to life by the authors amazing descriptions
on 17 June 2015
Maggie Hope is living in London at the start of World War Two. An excellent mathematician, Maggie has come to London to sell her Grandmother’s house but finds herself staying longer than expected. Turned down for any high level war jobs purely because she is a women, she finally accepts a job as a secretary at 10 Downing Street.
Impressed by her skills, Maggie soon becomes Winston Churchill’s secretary.
However, if Maggie thought that she would be trapped at a desk typing then she is wrong. Everyone knows that the country is fighting a war against the Germans but very few people knew of the war that MI5 and the security services were fighting an enemy MUCH closer to home.
Maggie’s time at 10 Downing Street is far from boring, drawn into a web of lies, espionage, betrayal and danger, which is linked very closely to her personal life.
Will Maggie and her friends find the cause of the danger and betrayal before it is too late?
A gripping read with 1940’s London brought to life by the authors amazing descriptions. You can sense the fear that has taken hold of the capital and those in charge. Loved this book and will look forward to reading the next 2 books in the series.
