Working in San Francisco as a PI years after her work in the Spanish Civil War, World War II seems a world away, but it might as well be on Miranda Corbie's doorstep now that she's learned that her mother, whom she hasn't seen in years, is trapped in England. There isn't much she can do until the State Department asks her to keep an eye on a chemistry professor who they suspect is a Nazi spy trafficking in information on allied forces armaments. The five grand fee that the State Department is offering for the job is tempting, but what seals the deal is the chance to bring her mother home.

I liked the first novel the best. Miranda Corbie was a tough PI, glamorous and yet vulnerable too. Couldn't get through the 2nd and 3rd novels about this character. Too much smoking by Miranda and all kinds of sidebar like chattering by the author. Too bad, as I would have loved to read more about her adventures.
