              The Spy's Wife

              The Spy's Wife (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

              By McIntosh, Fiona

              The highly anticipated new historical adventure from the bestselling author of The Champagne War. Evie, a widow and stationmaster's daughter, helplessly looks out for the weekly visit of the handsome man she and her sister call The Southerner on their train platform in the wilds ...of northern England. When polite salutations shift to friendly conversations, they become captivated by each other's reticent manner. After so much sorrow, the childless Evie can't believe love and the chance for her own family has come into her life again. With rumours coming out of Germany that Hitler may be stirring up war again, local English authorities have warned against spies. Even Evie becomes suspicious of her new suitor, Roger. But all is not what it seems. When Roger is arrested, Evie comes up with an audacious plan to prove his innocence that means moving to Germany and working as a British counter-spy. Wearing the disguise of dutiful, naive wife, Evie must charm the Nazi Party's dangerous officials to bring home hard evidence of war mongering on the F hrer's part. But in this game of cat and mouse, it seems everyone has an ulterior motive, and Evie finds it impossible to know who to trust. With lives on the line, ultimate sacrifices will be made as she wrestles between her patriotism and saving the man she loves. From the windswept moors of the Yorkshire dales to the noisy beer halls of Munich and grand country estates in the picture-book Bavarian mountains, this is a lively and high-stakes thriller that will keep you second-guessing until the very end.

              From the south coast of England to the rugged farmland of northern Tasmania and the lively streets of postwar Paris, this is an extraordinary story of courage, determination and everlasting love from the internationally bestselling author of The Lavender Keeper. At the end of the... Second World War, Luc and Lisette Ravens have somehow survived their time as a French resistance fighter and a British spy. Haunted by the horrors they have seen, instead of going home to Provence, they cast their fate to the winds and set sail for Australia, hoping to rebuild their lives planting lavender fields in a land that's full of promise. But the past cannot be evaded so simply. When a Swiss law student learns a confronting truth that connects his family with the Ravens on the other side of the world, he finds himself holding the key to his own future, and to Luc's troubled past. Luc must return to France to fulfil the promises by which he has been bound - to his beloved Lisette, to his family, and to the one man responsible for ripping so much from his life. Luc must lay to rest the ghosts of years gone by so that they all might live and love again.

              A spate of seemingly unconnected murders in southern England prompts a high-profile taskforce to be formed and led by DCI Jack Hawksworth, one of the Force's new rising stars who combines modern methods with old-school instincts. The victims appear as disparate as their style of ...death; the only link that Hawk and his team can pull together is that all the murdered are men of identical age. With that platform as their only way forward, the taskforce has nothing tangible but cold cases of decades past to comb through in the hope that they might find a clue to who might be behind the savagery.But with little progress frustrating everyone and his most trusted detective threatening to betray him while the public and police force are pressuring for results, Jack must confront his own ability and conduct as the morgue fills and media hysteria builds.An emotional tale of brutal revenge with a chilling twist that profoundly affects the lives of all the people involved in its shocking climax.
