Would you sell your secrets?
Catherine Carlisle is trapped in a loveless marriage and the threat of World War Two is looming. She sees no way out… that is until a trusted friend asks her to switch her husband’s papers in a desperate bid to confuse the Germans.
Soon Catherine finds herself caught up in a deadly mixture of espionage and murder. Someone is selling secrets to the other side, and the evidence seems to point right at her.
Can she clear her name before it’s too late?
The Silent Woman kept me turning the pages with its gripping storyline and a brilliant heroine.
In this historical novel by Terry Lynn Thomas which is also the first book in the Cat Carlisle Series, I enjoyed following the evolution of the main character, Cat Carlisle who initially appeared just like a woman trapped in an unhappy marriage and then a turn of events transforms her into a spy, making the storyline definitely appealing.
This novel is both mystery and thriller, and the author has done a fantastic job in creating such a compelling turn of the events in a pre- WWII time.
I couldn’t be more excited to recommend this novel which I read in one sitting and now, I can’t wait to read the second book.
Thanks to the publisher and Historical Fiction Virtual Book Tours for my copy in exchange for my honest review.
