    World War II has finally come home to Britain, but it takes more than nightly air raids to rattle intrepid spy and expert code breaker Maggie Hope. After serving as a secret agent to protect Princess Elizabeth at Windsor Castle, Maggie is now an elite member of the Special Operations Executive–a black ops organization designed to aid the British effort abroad–and her first assignment sends her straight into Nazi-controlled Berlin, the very heart of the German war machine. Relying on her quick wit and keen instincts, Maggie infiltrates the highest level of Berlin society, gathering information to pass on to London headquarters. But the secrets she unveils will expose a darker, more dangerous side of the war–and of her own past.

    What did you like best about this story?

    A good addition to the series. Maggie is an interesting character although I found this one a little less suspenseful than the previous books. Still, it's an interesting time and the book does a good job of showing the humanity even in the horrors of World War II.


    What three words best describe Susan Duerden’s voice?

    She has a good voice and I know she can certainly do convincing characters. I didn't think her voicing of male characters here was very good though. Even the good guys sounded a bit sinister.

    Story

    Dorothea Brooke is an ardent idealist who represses her vivacity and intelligence for the cold, theological pedant Casaubon. One man understands her true nature: the artist Will Ladislaw. But how can love triumph against her sense of duty and Casaubon’s mean spirit? Meanwhile, in the little world of Middlemarch, the broader world is mirrored: the world of politics, social change, and reforms, as well as betrayal, greed, blackmail, ambition, and disappointment.

    If you could sum up Middlemarch in three words, what would they be?

    Witty, intelligent, captivating.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Middlemarch?

    The whole book is filled with memorable moments, good writing, astute observations.


    Have you listened to any of Juliet Stevenson’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Juliet Stevenson is convincing and versatile. I couldn't stop listening!
