Maggie Hope is the heroine of what promises to be an interesting series by Susan Elia Macneal. Born in England and raised in the US, Maggie returns to London on the eve of WW2. Highly educated, resourceful and with an interesting personal history, Maggie epitomises the ideal literary female protagonist.
This is a great and easy to read first novel introducing Maggie. It involves the IRA, Nazi sympathisers and MI5 with plenty of deceit and shenanigans to keep the reader interested.
Macneal has obviously researched the British theatre of WW2 extensively and the literature, architecture and music of the era are also included in the novel.
Perhaps some of the character's actions are a bit questionable but otherwise it is a great story.
