Speakeasy
Speakeasy: A Novel | Alisa Smith
4 posts | 3 read | 4 to read
In this literate and action-packed historical thriller, set during World War II, a plucky code-breaker fights to keep a deadly secret as her Bonnie-and-Clyde past threatens to catch up with her. Thirty-year-old Lena Stillman is living a perfectly respectable life when a shocking newspaper headline calls up her past: it concerns her former lover, charismatic bank robber Bill Bagley. A romantic and charming figure, Lena had tried to forget him by resuming her linguistic studies, which led to her recruitment as a Navy code-breaker intercepting Japanese messages during World War II. But can Lena keep her own secrets? Threatening notes and the appearance of an old diary that recalls her gangster days are poised to upset her new life. Whom can she really trust? Is there a spy among the code-breakers? And who is it that wants her dead? Alisa Smiths novel Speakeasy, set in the thirties and forties, is written with great authority. A wonderful read, and very convincing. Richard Bausch, author of Something Is Out There and Peace

We went to a "SpookEasy" hidden behind the bookshelf off to the side. I thought I took a picture of the shelf itself but apparently did not. The whole thing was halloween themed and fantastic, and I now think of the bookshelf entrance into a secret room whenever I open a book. :P

Purrsistently @chaoticgoodhufflepuff @Meaw_catlady it was so much fun! And the bar was mostly a variety of teas you could add pretty much any flavor to! 1w

I was all set to settle in with a drink and the tagged book at the pool - but then the thunder and lightning came so now I'm sitting in the a/c reading!
