Product Description:

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • American-born spy and code-breaker extraordinaire Maggie Hope secretly navigates Nazi-occupied France to find two brave women during the darkest days of World War II in the latest novel in this bestselling series—“a treat for WWII buffs and mystery lovers alike” (Booklist, on The Prime Minister’s Secret Agent).

Maggie Hope has come a long way since serving as a typist for Winston Churchill. Now she’s working undercover for the Special Operations Executive in the elegant but eerily silent city of Paris, where SS officers prowl the streets in their Mercedes and the Ritz is draped with swastika banners. Walking among the enemy is tense and terrifying, and even though she’s disguised in chic Chanel, Maggie can’t help longing for home.

But her missions come first. Maggie’s half sister, Elise, has disappeared after being saved from a concentration camp, and Maggie is desperate to find her—that is, if Elise even wants to be found. Equally urgent, Churchill is planning the Allied invasion of France, and SOE agent Erica Calvert has been captured, the whereabouts of her vital research regarding Normandy unknown. Maggie must risk her life to penetrate powerful circles and employ all her talents for deception and spycraft to root out a traitor, find her sister, and locate the reports crucial to planning D-Day in a deadly game of wits with the Nazi intelligence elite.

Praise for The Paris Spy

“Engrossing . . . A fast-paced climax leads to an ending that will leave readers eagerly awaiting the next installment.”Publishers Weekly

“With its riveting plot and cliff-hanger finish, this is a solid addition to a series as well researched as it is entertaining.”Booklist

“You will grieve with Paris. You will be outraged by the destruction. You will be terrified for all the heroes, be there with them every step, and care desperately that they succeed and survive. And perhaps above all, like me, you will be overwhelmed with their sacrifice for the freedom we still enjoy.”—Anne Perry, New York Times bestselling author of the Charlotte and Thomas Pitt series and the William Monk series

“This has to be Maggie Hope’s most exciting adventure yet. Vivid and fast-paced, crammed with authentic detail, The Paris Spy is an extraordinary trip through the edgy drama of wartime Paris, skillfully plotted and studded with cameos by real historical figures.”—Jane Thynne, author of the Clara Vine series

Special Executive Operations agent Maggie Hope has two very good reasons for being in German-occupied Paris: Elise Hess and Erica Calvert. Maggie desperately wants to find her half-sister Elise, a German resistance fighter, and it is vital that Maggie track down Erica, a fellow SEO agent, who has been gathering mission critical information for the upcoming Allied invasion of Europe. Disguised as Paige Kelly, an Irishwoman in Paris to buy her wedding trousseau, Maggie finds herself frantically searching the fashionable ateliers as well as the dangerous back allies of Paris for the women before time for them all runs out.

With The Paris Spy, the seventh superb installment in her Maggie Hope series, MacNeal once again deftly mingles fact and fiction and history and mystery into one seamlessly plotted, deeply satisfying story. MacNeal writes with great eloquence and sharp clarity about the rampant corruption and casual brutality of life in Paris under the Germans during World War II, but she also skillfully incorporates into her plot some unforgettable examples of the courageous sacrifices—as well as the subtle acts of defiance—made by ordinary people determined to fight back against a government, whose evil knew no boundaries. Put this gripping plotline together with the book’s impeccably researched setting and realistically nuanced characters, and you have an extraordinary historical mystery that fans of this sterling series will treasure.

Erica Calvert, an undercover agent with Churchill’s Special Operations Executive (SOE) team, is captured in Nazis-occupied Paris and “held for questioning,” a.k.a. beaten and tortured, for information about her mission. After Erica goes missing, fellow agent Maggie Hope is deployed to Paris to locate Erica and connect with the other SOE agents who are laying the groundwork for the Normandy invasion.

The Nazis already know that an allied invasion is coming, they just need to determine how and from where. To gain the advantage, they exploit SOE intel and communications through the help of a mole implanted inside the SOE. It’s up to Maggie and members of the Resistance to avoid capture and complete Erica’s mission to deliver information vital to the Invasion.

MacNeal’s 7th Maggie Hope Mystery is her most gripping yet. Her accurate portrayal of Nazi occupied Paris captures their outrageous cruelty and obscene decadence. Readers can sense the tension of Maggie’s and her cohorts’ constant peril as they hide in plain sight, moving among the deadly Nazi elite. And all the while an unknown, traitorous informant threatens their very existence. Suspenseful. Breathless. Disturbing. Unforgettable.
