Sometimes a spy can know too much and as WWII rages, American-born spy and code-breaker Maggie Hope holds too many of Britain’s most dangerous secrets. Held prisoner on a remote Scottish island with other SOE agents deemed too vulnerable to be out in the field, Maggie bides her time at Killoch Castle, out of contact with friends and family, surrounded by fellow inmates who have been trained to kill. But when one drops dead and another death soon follows, Maggie realizes she needs to find a brilliant killer before she becomes his next victim.

MacNeal is the New York Times best-selling author of the Maggie Hope mysteries, MacNeal won the Barry Award and has been nominated for the Edgar, Macavity, Agatha, Left Coast Crime, Dilys and ITW Thriller awards. She lives in Brooklyn with her husband and son.
