Captain Sue Lee Ono, a code breaker for Army intelligence, is moving deeper into the world of espionage. Her language skills take her to Nazi-occupied Paris, where her assignment is to find and help liberate a Jewish scientist.
She needs to accomplish her mission before the Gestapo, with the help of the Vichy French, round up all the Jewish residents in Paris and ship them to Auschwitz to the gas chambers.
Her handler and new lover is Alex Mueller from the Army Counter Intelligence Command.
One of the legendary Ritchie Boys who specialize in methods of intelligence, counterintelligence, interrogation, investigation, psychological warfare, and killing.
D. M. Sorlie's second book in the Sue Lee Mystery series takes you on a fast-moving story.
Sue Lee is caught up in the timeline of World War Two, while trying to find the meaning of a cryptic message involving her beloved deceased Uncle Yoshi. She finds herself gathering more intriguing information as she travels on assignment to Hawaii, Australia, England, France, and The Rock of Gibraltar.
This is book two of the Sue Lee series. Sue Lee Ono is now a Captain in the United States Army. She is a code breaker but her vast language skills have her being assigned to espionage assignments.
In this story Sue Lee is sent to Nazi occupied Paris, France to find and liberate a Jewish scientist. Sue Lee is working under pressure as the Gestapo is in the process of rounding up all the Jews to ship them off to concentration camps. Sue Lee is half Hawaiian and half Japanese; book one described the problems she has encountered in San Francisco because of the prejudice toward the Japanese. In this story Sue Lee travels to Hawaii, Australia, England, France, Spain and Gibraltar. Sue Lee’s personal life is intertwined with her military life. She is still working on deciphering a cryptic message about her Uncle Yoshi who was murdered in book one of the series.
The book is well written and researched. Sorlie takes the reader on a travelogue visit including a brief history of Paris and Spain during WWII. The story moves at a very fast pace. The book is only 104 pages or about 3 hours of audio. I am enjoying this new exciting series. Jeffrey A. Hering is a professional voice over actor who has done many commercials as well as narrating podcasts and audiobook. Hering does a good job narrating this series.
