Authors: Quinn, Kate
Genre: Fiction
Pages: 532
Year: 2017

Description: Unconventional American socialite Charlie St. Clair is determined to find out the fate of her cousin Rose who disappeared in Nazi-occupied France. Her only clue is a London address that offers up Eve Gardiner, an embittered WWI spy, drinking herself into an early grave, but someone prepared to help her in her search. For Eve has her own mystery to solve: what really happened to the (real-life) Alice Network, a web of female espionage agents that she had been part of.

Moving between 1915 and 1947, this is an exciting, historically accurate story of nail-biting intensity and vividly drawn characters.

With school holidays, grandchildren visiting etc, we only had half our club members here for the discussion. The enthusiasm for 'The Alice Network' was palpable however. An added bonus was to discover in the author's notes that many of the events actually did happen, as described in the novel. It was 100% thumbs-up for this one. And everyone read it in record time! " A real page turner".
