Everyone hides secrets. Some provoke murder.
Olivia Denis discovers her father kneeling over the body of a man…a man who supposedly drowned in the Channel years before. Olivia wants to ring for help, her father wants to hide the body, but a mysterious phone call brings Scotland Yard to the murder scene. Olivia can’t stand by and let her maddening, disapproving father hang. To prove his innocence – and learn his secrets - she must work with a master spy. The search for clues takes Olivia to the continent and the Kent countryside, Hastings and London, pushing her deeper into the world of danger and deception.
As war between Germany and Britain stalks closer, the hunt for a Nazi collaborator intensifies. With a mounting death toll, Olivia knows she must unmask the killer or be the next to die.
Review: This is book four in the deadly series. Can I just say, ARGH! somehow I missed 2 books? I read the first one and absolutely loved it. I love this one just as much.

In this book Olivia is working to clear her father's name when she finds him standing over a body, a body that belongs to one of his friends that supposedly died years before in a boating accident.

This is book full of secrets and intrigue and the beginnings of war.

If you love historical mysteries, this is definitely a series for you

Kate Parker grew up in Washington, D C, spent several years along the Carolina coast, and now finds herself in the Colorado front range. All the time, she has been busy plotting to spend more time in her favorite city, London, where her books are set.

Chadwick House will both be for sale at the usual retailers plus given away to the readers of her newsletter. It is her first contemporary mystery.
