The White Lady

The White Lady by Jacqueline Winspear introduces a new crime-fighting hero, from the creator of the beloved Maisie Dobbs. In 1947, Elinor White is a reclusive, slightly mysterious woman living in rural Kent, where no one is aware of her dangerous past as a spy in both world wars. In 1914, when Elinor’s family failed to escape Belgium before it was occupied by the Germans, schoolgirl Elinor was trained in methods of self-defense and sabotage, skills that would serve her again working with Special Operations in Britain during the Second World War. Now, when one of her neighbors in Kent with ties to a notorious crime family in London is threatened, Elinor must use her wartime skills and contacts to see if she can stop the machinations of gangsters.
