**** 4 stars, Loved it: This pre- and during WWII-set novel is great for anyone.



Recommended readers:

  • If you like novels with WWII history and drama
  • If you want an action-packed, historical read
  • If you like strong female characters

Here’s my Rankings:

  • 4/5 for characters
  • 4/5 for plot
  • 4/5 overall


In her dual story-line novel set in the 1930s and 1940s, Alisa Smith digs deep into the past and present of the intelligent, ambitious Lena Stillman. As a top code breaker for Britian during World War II, Lena is already a target from her peers – but as her questionable past starts to resurface, she tries to overcome her law-breaking past.

A fascinating tale of Lena’s bank-robbing history weaved together with her mysterious war-time life, Alisa Smith connects this real-life inspired character into an intense historical time. Through the eyes of Lena, you experience a fascinating story of start-up crime, with WWII spy and espionage. Grab a copy for you, your husband and friends to enjoy: Speakeasy is great for anyone.
