Description
A richly woven page-turner follows a young American woman to war-torn England as she struggles to safeguard the Allies’ most important intelligence secrets When Second Lieutenant Elizabeth “Liza” Marantz’s train pulls into London’s Victoria Station, the city’s fabled streets are aflame in the aftermath of a massive Luftwaffe bombing attack. In London to join the staff of SHAEF (Supreme Headquarters Allied Expeditionary Force), Liza is ready to keep D-Day plans away from the German forces—even if it means her life.Paired with former New York homicide detective Major Sam Taggart distractions begin to pile up almost immediately when two of Liza’s co-workers, both mistresses of high-ranking generals, suspiciously turn up dead. As Liza and Taggart trek from the blitzkrieg-ravaged London to vast, elegant country estates, it becomes clear that more than one conspiracy is afoot—and that the very success of the war may rest in their hands. Crackling with rich dialogue and white-knuckle suspense, The Deadly Embraceshowcases Robert J. Mrazek’s remarkable gift for storytelling and transports readers to a fascinating time in world history.

On the eve of the Planned D-Day invasion of Hitler's Fortress Europe, Lieutenant Elizabeth "Liza" Marantz arrives in London, the city streets aflame in the aftermath of a massive Luftwaffe bombing attack. Teamed up with Major Sam Taggart, a troubled former New York City homicide detective, she must investigate the deaths of two female colleagues who were involved in sexual relationships with powerful Allied commanders. As Liza's investigation leads from bomb-ravaged London to elegant English country estates, it becomes clear that more than one conspiracy is afoot—and that the very success of the war may rest in her hands.With rich dialogue and pulse-pounding suspense, The Deadly Embrace is a razor-sharp thriller, ingenious in its interweaving of fictional characters with real-life figures, and filled with fascinating historical atmosphere and detail.
