A nice mystery. I liked learning about Hollywood's involvement in the WWII effort. For good and bad the charaters and plot were out of a 40's B-movie. ( )

Others may enjoy this story more than I did. It was a freebie hardback (published in 2009) from the 2011 HNS goodie bag. Although I don't normally read mysteries, I thought I'd push my boundaries, because this involved the fledgling Women's Airforce Service Pilots (WASP), a pioneering group of women pilots who supported the WWII war effort by ferrying planes across the US and the Atlantic--a group I've always admired and feel more people should know about. The research and detail that went into the book are amazing. The author did her homework. Unfortunately, the plot and characters were just not my cup of tea. Also a slap on the wrist to the publisher Poisoned Pen Press for poor copy editing. I found a number of missing words and wrongly attributed characters that sent me searching through the text to make sure a dead guy wasn't speaking! I hope they caught the errors in the paperback edition. ( )

Fun little read. Set during WWII, combines Hollywood glamour with spy thriller. Plot may be a wee bit too contrived, but it moved right along and was fun. Would read others in the series ( )
