About the Book
Book title: Under Fire
Author: Linda Shenton Matchett
Release date: July 25, 2017
Journalist Ruth Brown’s sister Jane is pronounced dead after a boating accident in April 1942. Because Jane’s body is missing, Ruth is convinced her sister is still alive. During her investigation, Ruth becomes suspicious about Jane’s job. Eventually Ruth follows clues to war-torn London. By the time she uncovers the truth about Jane’s disappearance, she has stumbled on black marketers, resistance fighters and the IRA – all of whom may want her dead.
A great suspense book from start to finish. I love the writing of Linda Shenton Matchett, it is really good. The story just flowed along so good, a book that is hard to put down. Kept me guessing of who the bad guys was, never figured out on some of them. Set during WWII but the reporting side of it, I did wander how she carried her typewriter around when during that time it had to be heavy. She was one of the few women reporters and a very good one, determined to get the real story, to find out what happened to her sister. No romance in the book which was kinda of refreshing. Ruth travels to England to report on the war and investigate her sister death. I really got involved with the characters. I found myself talking to them. I was fortunate to receive an advanced copy of the book from the author.
