Maggie Hope has finally gotten her wish - to be dropped behind enemy lines in Germany and help the resistance. She is now a member of Winston Churchill's black ops division: SOE - Special Operations Executive. Her assignment is to last only four days, but knowing Maggie I am sure there will be reasons to keep her in Germany a little longer.

A fancy dinner at the home of a high ranking Nazi officer will put Maggie into contact with someone that she did not know existed. She is also hobnobbing with the likes of Hermann Goring and Joseph Goebbels. It is also where she is asked to interview to become a secretary for Goring.

Things to Ponder: Who is the mystery patient that Nurse Elise Hess has been caring for at the hospital? Does Maggie ever find out the real reason Churchill sent her on this very dangerous assignment? Will Maggie manage to plant the listening device in the home of the high ranking Nazi?

Hold on tight because you are in for the ride of your life. The pace of this book never slows down. With every book in the Maggie Hope mystery series, Ms. MacNeal's writing improves like a fine wine. I love how the author juggled all the storylines which kept you reading to find out what would happen next. Who knew that you could really knit coded messages? I loved this book and hope that Susan Elia MacNeal is busy researching and plotting the next Maggie Hope Mystery. Please don't make me wait too long for my next fix. So, if you like your mystery mixed with a dash of espionage, then you should be reading His Majesty's Hope.
