Terry Lynn Thomas, author of “House of Lies” has written a captivating and intriguing suspenseful mystery. This is the third in the series but can be read as a stand-alone. The Genres for this novel are Mystery, Suspense, and Fiction. The story takes place in England, during World War Two. The author describes her characters as complex and complicated. There are betrayals, danger, and murder.

Cat Carlisle, a wealthy widow, uses much of her inheritance to run a women’s refuge for abused women. Many of the husbands are angry and vengeful men. One of the ladies is found dead behind the house.  Cat and her fiance, Thomas find themselves in a very dangerous situation.

Thomas has hidden a very expensive chalice to keep it safe from the Nazis’ clutches. Could the murder have anything to do with the chalice? Or is there something else sinister going on?

Some of the characters are unbalanced and quirky and could be suspect to the murder. Just helping abused women puts Cat at terrible danger and risk.  It seems that not all the women who come for help, are not who they really say they are. I would recommend this exciting and thought-provoking story for those readers who enjoy a good mystery.
