Praise

“Maggie Hope and her adventures continue to be charming and absorbing.”Seattle Times

“The 10th Maggie Hope historical mystery by Susan Elia MacNeal is a particularly distinctive one . . . MacNeal’s brisk plotting and efficient dialogue propel a mystery cloaked in some universal truths: History is determined to repeat itself, no front is ever united and Hollywood, despite its glamour and sparkle, is a hall of mirrors.”The New York Times

“Stellar . . . Susan Elia MacNeal expertly braids the glitz and glamour of Hollywood with the chilling reality of the rise of American Nazis and blatant racism . . . Maggie notes that ‘it’s the same war, different country,’ and, sadly, one we’re still fighting.”Arizona Daily Star
 
“Los Angeles is a cauldron of racism, riots, and the rise of American Nazism. Hope navigates all of it with compassion and valor.”Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, “8 Thrilling New Mysteries for Summer 2021 Reading”

The Hollywood Spy is a swift, vibrant novel that peels back the asbestos curtain on the complex history of Los Angeles, home to heroes and villains, including both homegrown Nazis and run-of-the-mill racists and segregationists during the volatile days of World War II.”—Steph Cha, author of Your House Will Pay

“Unbelievable timeliness in this gutsy, brilliant look at 1940s Southern California and its bygone ties to Hitler’s regime.”—L.A. Chandlar, author of the Art Deco Mystery series

The Hollywood Spy is an absolute triumph. Maggie Hope is as irresistible a heroine as ever, and while she’s been to hell and back, her brilliance, empathy, and strength shine through in equal measure.”—Hilary Davidson, author of Her Last Breath

The Hollywood Spy is a riveting plunge into the tainted paradise of wartime Hollywood, where surface glitter masks a bone-deep decay. This series only gets more complex and satisfying with each new entry.”—Francine Mathews, author of The Alibi Club

“Maggie Hope’s return to America brings her to Los Angeles, where a starlet’s death reveals a battle for the soul of the country. Fans of the buoyant Maggie Hope will relish this sun-drenched excursion.”—Lori Rader-Day, author of The Black Hour

The Hollywood Spy is a juicy, delightful mystery that takes you straight into the glamour, drama, and dark intrigue of wartime Hollywood. It’s always a pleasure to follow Maggie Hope wherever she goes.”—Simone St. James, author of The Sun Down Motel

“Meticulously researched . . . fans of golden age Hollywood will find plenty to like.”Publishers Weekly

“In the tenth superbly crafted addition to her Maggie Hope series, MacNeal deftly captures both the dazzling side of 1943 California, with cameo appearances from Hollywood stars galore, and the dismaying aspects of the Golden State’s darker side . . . ”Library Journal, starred review
