From the back cover: For fans of Jacqueline Winspear, Charles Todd, and Anne Perry, The Prime Minister’s Secret Agent is a gripping new mystery featuring intrepid spy and code breaker Maggie Hope. And this time, the fallout of a deadly plot comes straight to her own front door.
World War II rages on across Europe, but Maggie Hope has finally found a moment of rest on the pastoral coast of western Scotland. Home from an undercover mission in Berlin, she settles down to teach at her old spy training camp, and to heal from scars on both her body and heart. Yet instead of enjoying the quieter pace of life, Maggie is quickly drawn into another web of danger and intrigue. When three ballerinas fall strangely ill in Glasgow—including one of Maggie’s dearest friends—Maggie partners with MI-5 to uncover the truth behind their unusual symptoms. What she finds points to a series of poisonings that may expose shocking government secrets and put countless British lives at stake. But it’s the fight brewing in the Pacific that will forever change the course of the war—and indelibly shape Maggie’s fate.
After the events of the Berlin mission wounded Maggie in both body and heart Maggie has gone to Scotland to be an instructor for agents-in-training. She is clearly suffering from PTSD and needs some time. However Sarah, her friend and ballet dancer dies, along with two others, from a mysterious illness. Now, before Japan bombs Pearl Harbor, Maggie must kick in to high gear to uncover the source of this deadly disease. The action and adventure pick up from there in a suspense plot that will keep you guessing as to what is going to happen next. Ms. MacNeal has written a nail-biting, page-turning thriller. Maggie Hope is such a real character that we care and so root for her to succeed. “The Prime Minister’s Secret Agent” is great fun to read. I am so looking forward to the next book in this series.
