Who wants to go to a secluded Scottish castle– in which someone may be a murderer? For today’s Monday Give Away, I have… an ARC of Susan Elia MacNeal’s latest in her acclaimed Maggie Hope series, The Prisoner in the Castle.
Here’s the official blurb:
A series of baffling murders among a group of imprisoned agents threatens the outcome of World War II in this chilling mystery from the New York Times bestselling author of Mr. Churchill’s Secretary.
World War II is raging, and former spy Maggie Hope knows too much.
She knows what the British government is willing to do to keep its secrets.
She knows the real location of the planned invasion of France.
She knows who’s lying. She knows who the double-crossers are. She knows exactly who is sending agents to their deaths.
These are the reasons Maggie is isolated on a remote Scottish island, in a prison known as Killoch Castle, out of contact with friends and family.
Then one of her fellow inmates drops dead in the middle of his after-dinner drink—and he’s only the first. As victims fall one by one, Maggie will have to call upon all her wits and skills to escape—not just certain death . . . but certain murder.
For what’s the most important thing Maggie Hope knows?
She must survive.
For a chance to win my ARC of The Prisoner in the Castle, here’s your question: do you have a favorite mystery series?
(I don’t think it will surprise anyone that I’m going with Lord Peter Wimsey here. Although there is some tough competition from various Elizabeth Peters characters….)
The winner will be announced on Wednesday.
