From the author of the wonderful Sold on a Monday comes another heartfelt story full of all the feels.
A story set during World War II of an illusionist who was recruited by British Intelligence and the ingenious use of Monopoly as a tool.
Fenna Vos is from Michigan. She knows what hardships are and she knows how to survive. As the war rages on overseas, she is working as an assistant to an escape artist. While she is the mastermind of the act. She controls it all. And this is one of her survival mechanisms. Control.
Just as she is fed up with her partner in the act, a man approaches her about working with British military intelligence. She works to design escape aids. MI9 is looking for those with special skills to end this war.
So Fenna becomes an inventor. Her loyalty will be tested and she may never be able to escape her own past.
This is a beautiful story of survival, courage, and overcoming when the odds are against you. And who knew about the Monopoly angle? I did not and I love it!
