I'm 20 pages in and already Maggie Hope is standing up to her male superiors by demanding to know why women aren't treated the same as the men. After all, aren't the female British spies fighting for the same thing as the men? Are women dying for the country like men? It is complete coincidence that I picked up this book on the heels of yesterdays wondrous, global events. It's sad that even after everything, we are still fighting the same fight all these years later.
