I have usually enjoyed the Maggie Hope series because I am interested in both mysteries and the World War II era. I know these books are novels, but the fact checkers / editors missed a very glaring error. The young man of color who is to be executed wants to volunteer to be an American pilot like the Japanese kamikaze pilots who flew suicide missions by crashing their planes into ships / military targets. This book, however, is set in December, 1941 and early January, 1942 shortly after Pearl Harbor. The Japanese did not used kamikaze pilots until the desperation of 1944. Thus they did not exist at the time of the narrative. I found the story line of the possible blackmail of Eleanor Roosevelt for lesbian liaisons to be an exploitation of recent books about her and Lorena "Hick" Hickok and lacking originality - several novelists have jumped on this bank wagon. I also found one of the "rescue escapades" to be less than believable. I usually read mysteries for "brain candy", i.e. fun. I cannot, however, divorce knowledge and judgment from reading any type of book. I was disappointed with this novel in the series. Cannot recommend. Kristi & Abby Tabby
