If you enjoyed “The Tattooist of Auschwitz,” read “The Huntress,” by Kate Quinn." The Washington Post

From the author of the New York Times and USA Todaybestselling novel, THE ALICE NETWORK, comes another fascinating historical novel about a battle-haunted English journalist and a Russian female bomber pilot who join forces to track the Huntress, a Nazi war criminal gone to ground in America.

In the aftermath of war, the hunter becomes the hunted…

Bold and fearless, Nina Markova always dreamed of flying. When the Nazis attack the Soviet Union, she risks everything to join the legendary Night Witches, an all-female night bomber regiment wreaking havoc on the invading Germans. When she is stranded behind enemy lines, Nina becomes the prey of a lethal Nazi murderess known as the Huntress, and only Nina’s bravery and cunning will keep her alive.

Transformed by the horrors he witnessed from Omaha Beach to the Nuremberg Trials, British war correspondent Ian Graham has become a Nazi hunter. Yet one target eludes him: a vicious predator known as the Huntress. To find her, the fierce, disciplined investigator joins forces with the only witness to escape the Huntress alive: the brazen, cocksure Nina. But a shared secret could derail their mission unless Ian and Nina force themselves to confront it.

Growing up in post-war Boston, seventeen-year-old Jordan McBride is determined to become a photographer. When her long-widowed father unexpectedly comes homes with a new fiancée, Jordan is thrilled. But there is something disconcerting about the soft-spoken German widow. Certain that danger is lurking, Jordan begins to delve into her new stepmother’s past—only to discover that there are mysteries buried deep in her family . . . secrets that may threaten all Jordan holds dear.

In this immersive, heart-wrenching story, Kate Quinn illuminates the consequences of war on individual lives, and the price we pay to seek justice and truth.

Review:  There is so much I don't know about WWII. I was always more fascinated by WWI. However in the last few years I've changed and its books like this that make me want to take a look at this part of history, a history that my father was involved with, serving in the Coast Guard during the war.

This book was just amazing. It was a definite googling book, as I wanted to know more and more about the real life women known as The Night Witches.

This is a story that grabs the reader. With great characters, Nina who has a first hand encounter with The Huntress, Ian, a war correspondent and Nazi hunter as well as Jordan a 17 year old that longs to be a photographer.

The Huntress is pure evil and her deeds...oye.

You'll just have to read it yourself.

All I can say, is this is a book that will keep the pages turning long into the night.

I had no idea the Night Witches were a thing but that's enough to peak my interest in this one! Thanks for being on the tour.
