About the Author

RHYS BOWEN is the New York Times bestselling author of the Anthony Award- and Agatha Award-winning Molly Murphy mysteries, the Edgar Award-nominated Evan Evans series, the Royal Spyness series, and several stand-alone novels including In Farleigh Field. Born in England, she lives in San Rafael, CA.


"Bowen perfectly develops both narratives with absorbing details about several characters and different geographical environments. And she tops her story off with a realistic, satisfying ending!" --Historical Novels Review

"Bowen's story sweeps up the reader on a nonstop rollercoaster ride of action, espionage, heartbreaking sacrifice, revenge, and reunions both joyful and painful that should come as no surprise to fans of her work. While one of the plot points requires a healthy suspension of disbelief, it does not detract from the novel's overall satisfying message of love lost and regained in the fiery crucible of World War II." --BookTrib

"Rhys Bowen's multitude of fans will love The Paris Assignment, a story of love and war, of bitterness and brutality, of bravery and forgiveness, woven together with a rich sense of time and place, and characters only a master storyteller could create." --Jacqueline Winspear, New York Times bestselling author of The White Lady and the Maisie Dobbs series

"No one writes a wartime historical novel as well as Rhys Bowen. The Paris Assignment is a gripping, evocative, and skillfully plotted read, with a heroine you will root for right up to the satisfying conclusion. I couldn't put it down!" --Deborah Crombie, New York Times bestselling author of the Duncan Kincaid / Gemma James novel series

"Gorgeous, authentic, and absolutely riveting. There is no better storyteller than Rhys Bowen! The Paris Assignment, like all her novels, is meticulously researched, brilliantly told, and endlessly captivating. Bowen's extraordinary ability to synthesize history and present it as essential and heartbreaking human drama is unmatched. I read this in total awe, as it honors reality and cinematically brings it to life again. The Paris Assignment is emotionally and historically immersive, and no reader will be the same after they turn the final page." --Hank Phillippi Ryan, USA Today bestselling author, Mary Higgins Clark and five-time Agatha Award winner

"The Paris Assignment is a sweeping story of love, bravery, and ultimately hope. Rhys Bowen masterfully weaves an immersive story that carries us through the crucible of war with characters that capture your imagination and heart. Traveling through Paris, London, and Australia, The Paris Assignment is a story about the things we do when we believe there might be nothing left to lose, about the irrepressible love of a wife and mother, and about courage in the face of great and terrible odds. Historical fiction at its best, The Paris Assignment is a rich and absorbing experience." --Patti Callahan Henry, New York Times bestselling author of The Secret Book of Flora Lea

"Rhys Bowen has written an absolute stunner! Her grasp of the soul of a Parisian artist, mother and fighter is perfect. Madeleine Grant is a gripping, powerful and unforgettable character who I cheered for and cried with. The Paris Assignment is truly an unforgettable novel." --M.J. Rose, New York Times bestselling author of The Jeweler of Stolen Dreams
