Good World War II Espionage Tale
- Nancy J "Mystery reader (especially series) and Austen lover"
Great spy tale
Just like The 39 Steps, this tale takes average people and throws them into a nest of German spys. What fun! I love Innes' Appleby books - you never know what you're going to get - murdering academics, the classic manor mystery, or a spy thriller. They are so much of their time and yet timeless. Not to everyone's taste, but certainly to mine.
