Helen Meeker is back and has fewer than thirty days to stop the execution of an innocent pastor who has unbelievably confessed to being a Nazi spy. While on a case that has dynamic implications to uncovering an espionage ring operating on American and British soil, Helen defuses a hostage crisis in a bank robbery gone wrong, unearths an explosive coffin, and is introduced to a dead English hero who seems very much alive. The fate of an innocent girl and the world’s two most dynamic leaders depend upon Helen’s connecting the cases before Wilbur Shellmeyer faces a firing squad and Churchill and Roosevelt meet for a secret conference in upstate New York.
I really like Helen, special operative working for President Roosevelt. We first met her in The Yellow Packard (see my review here). She is gutsy, a good shot, and a superb investigative agent. She's mad at Hoover because he lets only men be FBI agents. She is the perfect female heroine.
There is plenty of action and mystery in this story. A hint of romance too. It is a page turner and I loved it. It's only Episode One so there is much more to come.
