Summary
NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • In this riveting mystery from Susan Elia MacNeal, England's most daring spy, Maggie Hope, travels across the pond to America, where a looming scandal poses a grave threat to the White House and the Allied cause.December 1941. Soon after the attack on Pearl Harbor, Winston Churchill arrives in Washington, D.C., along with special agent Maggie Hope. Posing as his typist, she is accompanying the prime minister as he meets with President Roosevelt to negotiate the United States' entry into World War II. When one of the First Lady's aides is mysteriously murdered, Maggie is quickly drawn into Mrs. Roosevelt's inner circle—as ER herself is implicated in the crime. Maggie knows she must keep the investigation quiet, so she employs her unparalleled skills at code breaking and espionage to figure out who would target Mrs. Roosevelt, and why. What Maggie uncovers is a shocking conspiracy that could jeopardize American support for the war and leave the fate of the world hanging dangerously in the balance.Praise for Mrs. Roosevelt's Confidante "MacNeal paints an engrossing portrait of a country on the verge of war, with many laws suspended and prejudice rife—a world not that much different from today."—Kirkus Reviews "MacNeal's fifth Maggie Hope mystery is another solidly researched entry with the indomitable Maggie in top form."—Booklist "Another winner filled both with fact and marvelous fiction . . . Maggie is a wonderful character with the strength and determination, as well as intelligence, to make her a resourceful spy."—RT Book Reviews "MacNeal's images and characters are true to the time, and the resonance of several of the subplots with current events deepen the impact of the tale; MacNeal is to be commended for her skillful weaving of racial and gender issues into an already complex political picture. . . . There's a tremendous amount of world and U.S. history in this delightful volume."—Historical Novels Review "Addictive . . . [MacNeal] paints convincing portraitures of the Roosevelts and other real-life historical figures. . . . The author continues to tackle heady issues while giving us a beloved heroine to root for. Wrought with peril and tension and extraordinarily rich in detail and research, Hope's latest adventure will not disappoint fans of the series."—Fredericksburg Free Lance–StarPraise for the bestselling Maggie Hope mysteries"You'll be [Maggie Hope's] loyal subject, ready to follow her wherever she goes."—O: The Oprah Magazine"[A] stellar series."—Minneapolis Star Tribune"A treat for WWII buffs and mystery lovers alike."—Booklist
