Crime and espionage is the theme of the week on this week’s new book shelf. New mystery favorite Maggie Hope seems to please both cozy and suspense fans. In The Paris Spy, author Susan Elia MacNeal has Maggie working undercover in Nazi-occupied Paris. Here job is to connect with two agents who are working with the resistance: fellow Brit Erica Calvert and her German half-sister, Elise Hess. At stake? Gathering intelligence for planned Normandy invasion. The problem? One of her colleagues is a double agent. “Fast paced” and skillfully plotted”, you may have trouble putting this one down (author Jane Thynne).
