    The beloved actor and screenwriter's first novel, set during World War I, delicately and elegantly explores a most unusual romance. It's almost the end of the war, and Paul Peachy, a young railway employee and amateur actor, enlists and ships off to France. Peachy instantly realizes how out of his depth he is, and never more so than when he is captured. Risking everything, Peachy, who as a child of immigrants speaks German, makes the reckless decision to impersonate one of the enemy's most famous spies.

    "Entertainment, not history"
    Overall

    A good read. Entertaining, but serious historical inaccuracies. Read it for pleasure, not historical fiction.

    When Tom Newquist, a tough, honest, and respected detective in the Nola Lake sheriff's office died suddenly, the townsfolk were not surprised: Newquist worked too hard, smoked too much, and exercised too little. That plus an appetite for junk food made him a poster boy for an American Heart Association campaign.

    "Not her best work"
    Overall

    Typical Sue Grafton. However, there are some pretty tenuous threads in this story. It's OK, but I would consider this one of her weaker efforts.
