It’s the city’s most infamous after-hours haunt—a glittering hotbed of deals and debaucheries. The sordid death of Philip Stilwell sends shock waves through the Alibi Club … for there’s much more to Stilwell’s untimely end than a sex game gone wrong. His murder and the desperate attempt to keep a deadly weapon out of German hands will bring together the strands of a twisted plot of betrayal, passion, and espionage—one connected to the Alibi Club … and to the most explosive secret of the war.

As the Nazis march on Paris and the crisis escalates, four remarkable characters are swept into the maelstrom. Their courage will change the course of history.

Epic and yet intimate, a seamless blend of fact and fiction based on a little-known episode of the war, The Alibi Club is a thriller of fierce and complex suspense by a writer whose own life in the spy world makes espionage come uniquely alive.

    " okay, but it was hard to get into or care about the characters. It felt very disjointed. "

    " Years ago I worked at the office of the NY law firm mentioned in this story. It brought back memories. A good yarn above a beach read, but lots of characters to figure out. "

    " Historical fiction about France at the start of WWII and nuclear research going on at the time around Paris, spies and human folly. Interesting read. "

    " The large cast leads to disjointed plotting, and the ending fails to satisfy as little is resolved. Weaker than expected in both ideas and execution. "

    " I like her writing, but I preferred "Blown" over this one. My biggest complaint would be that I felt I had to juggle to many characters in my head which didn't allow any of them to be fully developed and became a pain, for me, to keep them all straight. "
