The five grand fee that the state department is offering for the job is tempting, but what seals the deal is the chance to bring her mother home. But that slim chance gets even slimmer when the professor turns up dead and Miranda tops the lists of suspects. Forced to go underground to find the killer and clear her name, Miranda Corbie soldiers on alone but determined in City of Ghosts, the most thrilling novel of Kelli Stanley's award-winning series.
PI Miranda Corbie will do anything to save her mother, but first she must clear her name of the murder of a Nazi spy June - Hitler's army has conquered France and is turning on England. While the United States is only now waking up to the war, it has been gnawing at Miranda Corbie for years - ever since she was a nurse in Spanish Civil War. Working in San Francisco as a PI years later, the war should seem a world away, but it might as well be on her doorstep now that she's learned that her mother - whom she hasn't seen in years - is trapped in England.

Stanley brings San Francisco to life in flamboyant language, reminiscent at times of such period prose-poets as radio's Norman Corwin and Bay Area newspaperman Herb Caen. The author's clear-eyed view of San Francisco and of Miranda's character adds to the strength of the novel's engrossing historical fiction. The atmosphere, character, dialogue and setting all feel authentic to the point that one wonders if Stanley has a device to go back in time, record events and come back to transcribe them.

The United States government enlists Miranda in the growing concern over the war in Europe. This story displays many disappointments such as Rick Sanders, Mark Gonzalez, James MacLeod, and Dianne, and this reader will not spoil the story of why so many disappointments.
The story begins with Miranda focused on locating her mother in England, but the trip to England does not take place, but the reader receives snippets of information about those early days of Catherine Corbie. Miranda blindly rushes to save the world, and pays dearly for her courage and stubbornness.
The language and setting are not as descriptive as in prior novels, and I miss that element. I enjoy the way that Stanley incorporates period music into the story, as well as the words of Shakespeare to introduce a new section. Kindle Edition Verified Purchase. Living in the San Francisco Bay area I wanted to like this book but ultimately didn't. It started off okay but soon wore out its welcome.
It's a "period" piece and there are constant and ultimately annoying references to products that were in common use at the time. Okay for a while, but eventually they became gratuitous and added nothing to the story. And the story itself never really grabbed me so I eventually gave up and never finished it. As I read I found myself wanting it to be over so I could get to another book with a better likelihood of getting my attention.
