Night Flight to Paris

Soho Crime (Kate Rees WWII, Bk. 2). Mar. 2023. 336p. ISBN 9781641293556. $27.95. THRILLER
In Black’s second “Kate Rees WWII” novel (following Three Hours in Paris), sharpshooter Kate is happy to be training soldiers in Scotland after a harrowing mission that included betrayal by her British handlers. When one of those handlers shows up and issues orders for a new assignment in Paris, she is not pleased. Heavily disguised as a Red Cross nurse, she must deliver penicillin cultures to the Pasteur Institute, assassinate a Nazi officer, and rescue her friend Margo, a spy who once saved her life. Of course, the only thing that she can really trust is her reliable Lee-Enfield rifle. The people that she must count on are double and triple agents involved in groups that are rife with political infighting. Readers will have a hard time keeping up with Kate’s breakneck-speed trips thorough Paris and even Cairo as she rushes to save Margo, kill the enemies, and get secret Nazi invasion plans, but it is definitely worth the ride.
VERDICT Black always delivers a great story featuring strong women. Buckle up and start turning the pages.
