At the height of WWII, Ellie and her Uncle Mick make ends meet in a bit of an unconventional way-they break into the homes of the rich and crack their safes. When they’re caught red handed during a particularly tricky heist, the British government makes an offer they can’t refuse. Either Ellie agrees to break into a safe to retrieve blueprints vital to the war effort, or both will be turned over to law enforcement. With a solid puzzle, espionage and double agents, humor, and a little romance, this is a great pick for mystery readers. Click here to find a copy
