Woman takes secretarial job inside Churchill's war room, to uncover a mole.
I thought of the movie "Darkest Hour"
Leaving her boring munitions factory job, avid mystery novel reader and secretary Evelyne Redfern finds herself investigating a murder in the Cabinet War Rooms and teams up with an aide to root out a mole selling government secrets.
The first in the immersive Parisian Orphan mystery series: A Traitor in Whitehall, from bestselling author Julia Kelly.
Evelyne Redfern isn't just the plucky and talented secretary/spy we come to know in the present day; her past as the infamous "Parisian Orphan" is sure to leave its mark on readers, and adds an extra layer of mystery.
For fans of Susan Elia MacNeal's Maggie Hope series and our own Allison Montclair's Sparks & Bainbridge series.
