LoveReading View on British Bulldog A Mirabelle Bevan Mystery

May 2015 eBook of the Month.

The ‘Mirabelle Bevan Mystery’ series continues to maintain the same convincing atmosphere and assured quality, yet with each book the author skilfully delivers a refreshingly different read. ‘British Bulldog’ is set in the early 50’s, a year after ‘England Expects’ and the Second World War still holds a formidable grip on Mirabelle’s life. As Mirabelle walks through the streets, you feel as though you are pacing alongside her, the 50’s comes to life and allows you to experience a Brighton, London and Paris from the past. The war years cast a daunting shadow, particularly over the women in this novel, haunting and tormenting thoughts and feelings. The background investigation hooks your interest, and when the action kicks in, it does so with a ferocious intensity. This is wonderful escapism and an extremely readable, intriguing blend of history, action and mystery. ~ Liz Robinson

The Good Book Guide Review

This fourth outing for Sara Sheridan’s stylish 1950s heroine, former Secret Service agent Mirabelle Bevan, is a tale of heroism, intrigue and dark secrets forgotten in the fog of war. When a lawyer turns up with news of a mysterious legacy from an old acquaintance, Major Matthew ‘Bulldog’ Bradley, it soon transpires that the inheritance comes with strings attached. Mirabelle is required to investigate the strange disappearance of an RAF pilot in occupied Europe. The search inevitably takes her across the channel. As she plunges into the shadowy world of Nazi agents turned Cold War spies and investigates the hidden activities of the French Resistance, Mirabelle finds herself forced to examine her own wartime past, and to confront the truth behind her former lover Jack’s intelligence work. A fast-paced and tightly plotted mystery, this new instalment in Sheridan’s best-selling series about a Brighton detective agency is smart and engrossing.
