This week, I'm featuring another pre-release - The Prime Minister's Secret Agent by Susan Elia MacNeal. The book comes out on Tuesday, but I've read an ARC this week, so look for my review on Tuesday.
This is the fourth in a series about Maggie Hope, American raised but with dual citizenship, she finds herself working under cover to help the British as World War II begins. I will say this, you definitely need to read the books in order or you won't enjoy them as much.
Anyway, here's how Chapter 1 begins:
Maggie Hope had thought that summer in Berlin was hell, but it was nothing compared to the inferno of darkness that now raged in her own head, even as she was "safe as houses" in Arisaig, on the western coast of Scotland.
And, skipping ahead to Page 56:
The Prime Minister chewed harder on his cigar, then banged his fist on the table, making Nelson jump. [The cat] pretended to groom himself to restore his dignity, then slunk off.
See how nice I am. I filled in who Nelson was for you without you even needing to ask.
