LoveReading Expert Review of The Beautiful Assassin

The book has a slow start but it's perfectly pitched to make sure you are well and truly hooked when it gallops into an intriguing spy story set during and after WW2. We really enjoyed the blending of real and fictional characters to create an exciting and captivating story with a very different central character, a female sniper with Hollywood looks. If you haven't read any Michael White then this is an excellent place to start as he has five other books waiting for you...

The Beautiful Assassin Synopsis

Elizabeth Moynihan, a young journalist, has hit the jackpot. It's 1992 and a chance remark has sent her to a small farm in the middle of nowhere in Colorado. There resides Russia's most notorious sniper-turned-spy, the one-time beautiful assassin, Tat'yana Levchenko, and she's ready to tell her story. During the Second World War, Tat'yana was Russia's secret weapon. After the Germans killed her daughter, aged four, she enlisted as a sniper for the Russian army. Having finally achieved her goal of killing three hundred Germans, she was badly injured in a siege and shipped back to Moscow. She was presented to Stalin, paraded among the ranks of high society and before the world's press. Her duty to her country not yet over, she was sent to America, to befriend Eleanor Roosevelt, touring the nation with her, securing support for the war. And all the while, she was to send vital information about American armament and troop plans back to her homeland. Before long, Tat'yana was ready to defect, putting her own life - and that of the man she loves - in more grave danger than ever before.
