Product Description:

A series of baffling murders among a group of imprisoned agents threatens the outcome of World War II in this chilling mystery from the New York Times bestselling author of Mr. Churchill’s Secretary.

World War II is raging, and former spy Maggie Hope knows too much.

She knows what the British government is willing to do to keep its secrets.

She knows the real location of the planned invasion of France.

She knows who’s lying. She knows who the double-crossers are. She knows exactly who is sending agents to their deaths.

These are the reasons Maggie is isolated on a remote Scottish island, in a prison known as Killoch Castle, out of contact with friends and family.

Then one of her fellow inmates drops dead in the middle of his after-dinner drink—and he’s only the first. As victims fall one by one, Maggie will have to call upon all her wits and skills to escape—not just certain death . . . but certain murder.

For what’s the most important thing Maggie Hope knows?

She must survive.

Praise for The Prisoner in the Castle

“Another literary tour de force . . . From the book’s perfectly calibrated plot to its incisively etched characters, everything is handled with perfect finesse by the author.”Poisoned Pen Newsletter

“One pleasure of a mystery series is connecting with a character that changes and grows with each novel. . . . Maggie’s intelligence and loyalty to the war effort continue to evolve in [Susan Elia] MacNeal’s series. . . . Solid twists keep the plot of The Prisoner in the Castle churning until the surprise finale.”—Associated Press

“A mystery . . . tailor-made for readers in the post-election, #MeToo era. . . . If you love a tricky puzzle that requires you to keep track of multiple alibis over time, this is your summer read.”The Washington Post

“Evocative.”Publishers Weekly

“MacNeal uses [Agatha] Christie’s And Then There Were None as a framework for a character-driven mystery/thriller that successfully emulates the original.”Kirkus Reviews

“The colonel sums it up best on page ten: ‘If you take a pretty girl and teach her how to kill, it can cause problems.’ Not just problems—electrifying action and nonstop surprises. I loved this book!”—R. L. Stine, author of the Goosebumps and Fear Street series



Forbidden Island is where the British Special Operations Executive (SOE) sends all of its problems. Of course, the SOE doesn’t tell the agents it sends there the truth, but instead tells these future prisoners that they are being sent to the out-of-the-way island off the coast of Scotland for “special training.” As the SOE’s latest problem, Maggie Hope hates being on Forbidden Island. Maggie wants to be back in the thick of things doing her part to help win the war for the Allies instead of spending her days slowly being driven mad by boredom. However, any thoughts of ennui are soon banished when first one, then another, and then another of the small group of carefully trained agents on Forbidden Island begin dying.

The Prisoner in the Castle, the eight stellar addition to MacNeal’s exceptional Maggie Hope series, is another literary tour de force. From the book’s perfectly calibrated plot to its incisively etched characters, everything is handle with perfect finesse by the author. Agatha Christie fans will especially appreciate the deft way in which MacNeal tips her cap to the Queen of Crime’s And Then There Were None, and the inventive manner in which MacNeal utilizes that classic mystery as inspiration for her own cleverly crafted storyline. While long-time readers of the Maggie Hope books will be thrilled with the latest mystery masterpiece from MacNeal, this is the kind of series that is most rewarding when read in order. So, if you are new to the adventures of Maggie Hope, start off with Mr. Churchill’s Secretary and prepare to enjoy the hours of reading entertainment that lie ahead of you.
