Susan is celebrating the release of the SIXTH book in the Maggie Hope Series with us. THE QUEEN’S ACCOMPLICE is MacNeal’s most captivating story to date in her award-winning series. Blending thoroughly researched WWII historical facts with one-of-kind storytelling and a resourceful, daring heroine, THE QUEEN’S ACCOMPLICE is an unforgettable read.
England, 1942. Great Britain and the U.S. have joined forces to fight the Nazis. The relentless Blitz may have paused, but London’s nightly blackouts continue. Under the cover of darkness, a madman is brutally killing and mutilating young women in eerie and exact re-creations of Jack the Ripper’s crimes. What’s more, he’s exclusively targeting women about to serve as Winston Churchill’s spies and saboteurs abroad. The officers at MI-5 quickly realize they need the help of special agent Maggie Hope to find the killer dubbed “the Blackout Beast.” A trap is set. But once the murderer has his sights on Maggie, not even Buckingham Palace can protect the resourceful spy from her fate.
