Mark Ellis Reads from and Discusses his WWII Detective, Frank Merlin
Join author Mark Ellis as he reads from and discusses the third book in his Frank Merlin, WWII detective series, Merlin at War.
About the Book:
The third thrilling book in the DCI Frank Merlin series. London. Summer 1941. Four violent deaths, French double agents, a daring fraud – Merlin sets out on his most complex and exciting case yet.
War rages across Europe. France is under the Nazi thumb. Britain has its back to the wall. In London, Scotland Yard detective Merlin investigates a series of disturbing events - a young girl killed in a botched abortion, a French emigre shot in a seedy Notting Hill flat, a mysterious letter written by a British officer, gunned down in Crete. With action spanning Buenos Aires, New York, Cairo and Occupied France, Merlin and his team are plunged into a dark world of espionage, murder, love and betrayal.
