Description

From the author of the New York Times and USA Today bestselling 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.

        Two people seek a murderous Nazi called the Huntress: Nina Markova, who flew with the Night Witches, the Soviet Union's all-female night-bomber regiment, and traumatized British war correspondent-turned-Nazi hunter Ian Graham. Then there's Boston teenager Jordan, puzzled by her widowed father's new German wife. With a 200,000-copy paperback and 25,000-copy hardcover first printing; Quinn's The Alice Network was a LibraryReads pick.

        Losing her mom in 1936 was tough, but Jordan McBride and her dad kept it together. Now 17 and dreaming of a photography career in postwar Boston, she finally gets to meet the woman who caught her dad's attention. Meanwhile, in Europe, British former war correspondent Ian and American ex-GI Tony team up with Russian fighter pilot Nina Markova to hunt down war criminals. At the top of their list is the Huntress, known for lulling her victims into a sense of safety before brutally killing them. Nina is the only witness to escape the Huntress. When the trail leads to Boston and the McBrides, will they find a murderer or a dead end? Readers should expect to give up weekend plans once they start this novel. Using fictional characters in a story based on real-life efforts to find Nazi fugitives provides a new historical viewpoint. Quinn (The Alice Network) builds her characters through small details, allowing readers to develop opinions on who's being honest and what their next action might be. The weaving of separate threads into a cohesive, satisfying end is subtle and skillful. VERDICT A great choice for historical fiction fans, particularly of World War IIset novels, mystery readers, or anyone seeking well-crafted stories in which good triumphs over evil.

        Nazi hunters team up with a former bomber pilot to bring a killer known as the Huntress to justice.In postwar Europe, Ian, a British war correspondent with a vendetta, and his American sidekick, Tony, have set up a shoestring operation to catch the war criminals who seem to be not just slipping, but swarming through the cracks. The same set of circumstances that led Ian to enter a marriage of convenience with Nina, a Siberian former bomber pilot, has also given both common cause: to chase down Lorelei Vogt, a Nazi known as the Huntress, who, by her lakeside lair in Poland, trapped and killed refugees, many of them children. Lorelei's mother, blandished by Tony, reveals that her daughter immigrated to Boston. Meanwhile, Jordan, an aspiring photographer living in Boston with her widowed antiques-dealer father, Dan, welcomes a new stepmother, Austrian refugee Anneliese, and her 4-year-old daughter, Ruth. Jordan soon grows suspicious of Dan's new bride: A candid shot captures Anneliese's furtive "cruel" glance--and there's that swastika charm hidden in her wedding bouquet. However, Anneliese manages to quell Jordan's suspicions by confessing part of the truth: that Ruth is not really her daughter but a war orphan. That Jordan's suspicions are so easily allayed strains credulity, especially since the reader is almost immediately aware that Anneliese is the Huntress in disguise. The suspense lies in how long it's going to take Ian and company to track her down and what the impact will be on Jordan and Ruth when they do. Well-researched and vivid segments are interspersed detailing Nina's backstory as one of Russia's sizable force of female combat pilots (dubbed The Night Witches by the Germans), establishing her as a fierce yet vulnerable antecedent to Lisbeth Salander. Quinn's language is evocative of the period, and her characters are good literary company.With any luck, the Nazi hunting will go on for a sequel or two.

      • content: Saskia Maarleveld's beautiful voice is an impeccable instrument for this finely wrought historical novel. She can indicate a change of speaker with the subtlest shift of timbre, and often seamlessly alternates, say, the voices of an Englishman, a Siberian girl, and a Brooklyn-born man, with yet a different tone for the narrator, all in one paragraph. In the next paragraph it's a working-class Bostonian, a chilly Austrian with barely a trace of accent, and a wonderful warmhearted American girl. If only Maarleveld wouldn't swallow syllables. Sigh. The huntress of the title is a vicious Nazi murderess being sought on two continents by an ill-assorted, underfunded tiny team of avengers. Maarleveld's Nina, the violent, fierce and unexpectedly touching Russian, is particularly fine, among many great pleasures here. B.G. � AudioFile 2019, Portland, Maine
