Playing it safe / Ashley Weaver.

Weaver, Ashley, (author.).


As the blitz continues to ravage London, Ellie McDonnell--formerly a safe-cracking thief, but currently determined to stay on the straight and narrow to help her country--is approached by British intelligence officer Major Ramsey with a new assignment. She is to trael under an assumed identity to the port city of Sunderland and there await further instructions. In his usual infuriating way, the major has left her a task as vague and mysterious as possible. Ellie, ever ready to aid her country, heads north, her safecracking tools in tow. But before she can rendezvous with the major, she witnesses an unnatural death. A man falls dead in the street in front of her, with a note clutched in his hand. Ellie's instincts tell her that the man's death is connected in some way to her mission. Soon, Ellie and the major are locked in a battle of wits and a race against time with an unknown and deadly adversary, and involved in a case that leads them to a possible Nazi counterfeiting operation. With bombs dropping on the city and a would-be assassin shadowing their every move, it will take all of Ellie's resourcefulness and Major Ramsey's fortitude to unmask the spymaster and avert disastrous consequences--for England and for their own lives. -- Provided by publisher.
