A Season of Shadows by Paul McCusker

In my opinion, Paul McCusker was born to write, and to write well. Once again, he has crafted a masterpiece called A Season of Shadows. It's about a woman who wakes up after a party at her house to discover that her husband has been killed in a car accident. But then she discovers that he was not as innocent as he seemed. He has a checkered past she knew nothing about until now. She is suddenly thrust into a web that spans across the Atlantic Ocean into England. She then joins a government agency in order to find out what's going on. Her job takes her from her homeland in America to England, where gets caught up in the London Blitz.
The characters are believable, mostly because of their imperfection. McCusker did a thorough job of researching London in WW2.
This is the kind of plot we look for in books. One that's lacking a romantic subplot. One that has a good hostage scene. One that has a good, ironic end. Paul McCusker has established himself as a truly Elite author.
4.5 stars
