Because sometimes, insanity and genius are indistinguishable…
Agatha Witchley used to be a spy in the Cold War, but now she’s locked up in the UK’s premier maximum-security mental institution. She believes that the ghosts of the celebrity dead visit her padded cell and whisper the world’s secrets in her ears. Which is a big problem for the British government, because she’s the only one who can help them when an American billionaire is murdered in London in one of the strangest killings yet.
The Home Secretary needs the case locked down and solved before the entrepreneur’s death becomes public knowledge and economic chaos ensures.
The woman he has in mind for the job might be paranoid, she might be lethal, she might half-insane and drawing a pension, but it’s amazing how you can forgive that in a genius when it’s a genius’s help you need.
Yes, the security forces need Agatha Witchley again. It’s just the ghosts of Churchill, Elvis and Groucho Marx they could do without.
If James Bond and Austin Powers had a love child, it would be Secrets of the Moon by Stephen Hunt. This spy novel is a wild and wacky ride that will leave you gasping and shaking your head in disbelief. If you’re in the mood for a good read and some ridiculous spy shenanigans, Secrets of the Moon is the book for you. Just don’t expect anything remotely serious or believable. This book is pure, unadulterated fun.
I just finished reading Secrets of the Moon and it was an absolute hoot. The story follows Agatha Witchley, a former spy. Agatha may be a little bit…eccentric but that just adds to the fun of the story. She believes that ghosts of dead celebrities visit her to solve her cases. The characters in this book are a riot. Agatha is a feisty old bird who is not afraid to speak her mind and the security forces who are trying to work with her are just as entertaining. There is plenty of action and intrigue to keep you on the edge of your seat. The mystery of the murder is complex and keeps you guessing until the end.
