Description

Women Airforce Service Pilot and undercover agent, Pucci Lewis, did not want to go to jail. But how else could she unmask Grace Buchanan-Dineen, an imprisoned countess-counteragent suspected of triple dealing and possibly putting our country's future at risk? Dineen, a real-life figure, led a German spy ring that operated in Detroit during WWII. Confronted by the FBI, she agreed to act as a counteragent helping to nail the other ring members. Jailed along with her cohorts—"for her own protection"—her rancor ran deep. Enter Pucci, landing in a B-24 bomber at the Willow Run aircraft factory. Late for a meeting, she takes a shortcut and stumbles upon a corpse. Agent Dante appears and reveals the dead man to be a German spy. A fellow Willow Run employee, Otto Renner, has been under surveillance and the FBI suspects a link between Renner and the imprisoned countess. Dante convinces Pucci to become a sister inmate to see what she can learn. Pucci's undercover work quickly ratchets up. In addition to her jail assignment, she infiltrates a posh women's club where Dineen, billed as a "charm consultant, " once lectured. Her mission: Are Dineen's former club contacts, the chic Barclay-Bly sisters and the club's beautician, Mrs. Otto Renner, moles? A romance brewing between Pucci and Dante is sidelined by professional demands when they partner up on a surreptitious break in. As the story unfolds, they not only expose the espionage ring but also confront an even greater threat to home land security.

“In World War II, Pucci Lewis, a female air force pilot and undercover spy, is sent to jail to cozy up to a notorious counterspy under suspicious of treason. Its an interesting premise, and Liesche, new to the writing game, pulls it off with mixed results. The story is well constructed and believable, but the characters feel insubstantial, as if they were people from other war stories recast into this one. Still, the strength of the story and the period detail are enough to sell the novel. Readers who enjoy a rousing WWII adventure will find enough to satisfy them here and may be better rewarded by Liesches subsequent efforts.”

—David Pitt, Booklist

“The year 1943: Enemy agents are working to attack the U.S. from within.

Pucci Lewis, a WASP pilot with a sideline in espionage, ferries planes around the country. Trained by the OSS, she's unexpectedly seconded to the FBI when she arrives in Detroit. She enjoys working for attractive Agent Dante until she's sent to jail disguised as a jewel thief to try to get close to Countess Grace Buchanan-Dineen, a counter-agent who may be double-crossing the Bureau. Next she's disguised as a reporter ensconced in the ritzy Cosmos Club, where she's supposed to be interviewing women contributing to the war effort while keeping an eye on Otto Renner, who's suspected of passing classified information to the enemy from the nearby Willow Run aircraft factory. Renner's wife is a beautician at the Cosmos Club, and society sisters Dee and Kiki Barclay-Bly, along with Kiki's husband V-V, a former Ukrainian freedom fighter, may also be undermining the home front. Pucci is shocked to meet her OSS roommate and dear friend Liberty Leach working as a manicurist at the club. When Liberty begs Pucci not to reveal her identity, Pucci wonders if she's caught in another turf war between government agencies or a more sinister conflict. In her reporter guise, Pucci interviews many suspects before her sleuthing rolls up the spy ring.

A sharply written adventure/mystery debut with a fine feeling for the period.”
