Narrated by Jenny Hoops
OSS flags a mysterious postcard from a sketchy part of France. Louise is the OSS liaison with the FBI sent to investigate the postcard.
- This one had a pretty slow start.
- Louise is Louise, a New Dealer, a progressive woman, a perfectly happy single woman ready to jump into an affair with a foreign national. There’s enough info that you can catch on if this is your first experience with the series. It’s a tad tedious if it’s not your first, but still a great series.
- Kind of an adult Nancy Drew but closer to Agent Carter. Set during WWII. There’s some cursing, but no adult scenes beyond Louise and Joe kissing. Talk of plans for more, but that’s about it.
- As usual, it’s a period piece, so avoid like a plague if you’re gonna have a heart attack over the fact that the word “colored” is used. Otherwise, enjoy the ride.
- This one had a slightly more exciting end than some of the other entries. Our heroine gets herself into yet another fine scrap.
- I do find it amusing that she can’t tell anybody the truth about what she does. She’s just a “government girl.”
- I enjoy the fact that she’s not the perfect detective. She can—and often does—make mistakes.
- Jenny Hoops doesn’t have a huge range of character voices, but you’ll be able to tell males from females. Her voice for Louise is perfect, which is great because it’s first person narration.
Decent entry in a fun series. Relatively clean, though there is some cursing, even casual cursing.
