The Traitors Girl
This book defines the term 'a good read'. It tells the tale of a former spy, is very well written and tells an excellent story. Christine Wells combines the elegance of Le Carre with the tension of Fleming. The characters are strong, layered and well defined. I'm hoping there may be other adventures for Carrie and Annabelle, a formidable team!
Absolutely loved this book and its intriguing plot and real life characters. It was well written, engaging and suspenseful until the very end. Can't wait to read more novels by this outstanding author.
