In this latest riveting mystery from New York Times best-selling author 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, DC, 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.

RACIST AND INSULTING TO BLACK AMERICANS
- Linda Lou
I have listened to and enjoyed other books in this series. This book however, is not up to the standards of the previous books. First of all, the narration is difficult to listen to - the names of places and people are mispronounced, the narrator has the irritating habit of changing the cadence of her speech at the end of sentences - sometimes seems that she is out of breath. The accents seem forced and exagerated.
More disturbing is the language used to describe African Americans - I doubt that Elinore Rooseveldt ever used the term "darkie" to describe a black person. i know that the book has been well reviewed- but I dissagree.
Prior books in the series more interesting
