"Huie's taut spy thriller takes the reader to a Britain and France where the wounds of war are both deep and fresh...An auspicious debut."-- "Charlie Lovett, New York Times bestselling author"
"Huie does an excellent job dramatizing events in the early days of the cold war. Vibrant characters, international intrigue, gritty action, and a wittily acerbic Ian Fleming, too--who could ask for more?"-- "Publishers Weekly (starred review)"
"Offer[s] a look at the fragile psyches of veterans in England and France, as well as the inner turmoil of war heroes who've seen too much but feel morally bound to fight on. Nash is a welcome new protagonist who will be welcomed by fans of Kate Atkinson's Transcription and Simon Mawer's Tightrope."-- "Booklist"

"Gritty and glamorous, Spitfire races through the streets of post-war London and Paris in a twisting story of intrigue and betrayal...Livy Nash is exactly my kind of heroine."-- "Julia Kelly, author of The Light Over London"
"Meticulously researched with a twisty, compelling plot and a heroine that you root for from the first page, Spitfire combines all the elements of great historical fiction."-- "Jane Healey, author of The Beantown Girls"
"Huie has created a hard-bitten, hardcore heroine in Livy Nash, and a perfectly noir spy thriller."-- "Alisa Smith, author of the Lena Stillman series"
"If you're a fan of espionage thrillers, you'll love Spitfire...A fantastic debut novel."-- "Jeanne M. Dickson, author of Grounded Hearts"
