The Alice Network: a Novel

In 1947, unmarried and pregnant American college girl Charlie St. Clair is taken to Europe by her refined and proper mother to take care of the “little problem.” Once there, however, Charlie gives mom the slip and hops on a train to London, to follow the only lead she has in finding out what happened to her beloved cousin Rose, now missing for three years from what was Nazi-occupied France. She knocks on the door of drunk and damaged Eve Gardiner, who may have some knowledge of Rose’s whereabouts. Chapters alternate between 1947 and 1915, when Eve was recruited by British intelligence and sent to France to work as a spy, gathering information from Nazis as they wined and dined in a collaborator’s elegant restaurant. With the help of Eve’s Scottish driver Finn, the two women embark on a trip to France to learn not only about Rose, but also about Eve’s sworn enemy, whose cruelty has haunted her for 30 years. Narrator Saskia Maarleveld is outstanding, using wonderful, unique voices and accents for each character. This audiobook is highly recommended, especially for those who like historical fiction and war fiction.
