Praise

Praise for Spitfire:
“This debut is more emotional than Fleming’s own Bond novels…Nash is a welcome new protagonist who will be welcomed by fans of Kate Atkinson’s Transcription (2018) and Simon Mawer’s Tightrope (2015).”
Booklist

“Huie’s taut spy thriller takes the reader to a Britain and France where the wounds of war are both deep and fresh . . . An auspicious debut.”
—Charlie Lovett, New York Times bestselling author of The Bookman’s Tale

“Post WWII London and Paris serve as a backdrop for a gutsy, damaged heroine who matches wits with a dangerous new enemy. A riveting page-turner!
—Dianne Freeman, author of the award-winning Countess of Harleigh mystery series

“Huie writes with dry, cracking wit and unflinching heart . . . Filled with intrigue, betrayal, heartache, and danger, Spitfire is a debut not to be missed.“ 
—Meghan Holloway, author of Once More Unto the Breach

Gritty and glamorousSpitfire races through the streets of post-war London and Paris in a twisting story of intrigue and betrayal . . . Livy Nash is exactly my kind of heroine.”
—Julia Kelly, author of The Light Over London

“Meticulously researched with a twisty, compelling plot and a heroine that you root for from the first page, Spitfire combines all the elements of great historical fiction.” 
—Jane Healey, author of The Beantown Girls 

“[An] intriguing tale of revenge and redemption.”
—D.M. Quincy, author of the Atlas Catesby mysteries

—Alisa Smith, author of the Lena Stillman series

If you’re a fan of espionage thrillers, you’ll love Spitfire. . . A fantastic debut novel.”
—Jeanne M. Dickson, author of Grounded Hearts

“An old-fashioned mystery shot through with tragedy; for aficionados of the glamour and romance of spycraft.”
Kirkus Reviews

“[A] spirited debut and series launch…Vibrant characters, international intrigue, gritty action, and a wittily acerbic Ian Fleming, too—who could ask for more?”
Publishers Weekly, starred review

“Satisfying to the very end…A good book and the start of a good series.”
New York Journal of Books

“If you’re after a riveting spy thriller with the added bonuses of an intrepid female protagonist, a fascinating historical setting, and a nuanced depiction of challenging ethical decisions, Spitfire will be a winner.”
