Reviews

Praise for Spitfire:
"[A] spirited debut and series launch...Vibrant characters, international intrigue, gritty action, and a wittily acerbic Ian Fleming, too--who could ask for more?"
--
Publishers Weekly,
starred review

"This debut is more emotional than Fleming's own Bond novels...Nash is a welcome new protagonist who will be welcomed by fans of Kate Atkinson's Transcription (2018) and Simon Mawer's Tightrope (2015)."
--Booklist

"A deftly penned and simply riveting read with more unexpected plot twists and turns than a Disneyland roller coaster."
--Midwest Book Review

"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 of The Bookman's Tale

--Julia Kelly, author of The Light Over London
