I really liked Alexandra’s Secret. The history was great and it gave you a good idea of what spies went through in World War II. The characters are believable and nicely portrayed. They are described in great detail which makes them really come alive in your mind, such as the descriptions of Alexandra and her training as an SSO agent. The storyline of trying to escape from enemy territory was exciting and the suspense kept you alert and ready for what would happen next. It is a thriller, and the suspense of whether or not they'll be caught along with wondering how will they get out of this situation keeps you on the edge of your seat. All in all it is very good historical fiction.
