Book Review

Traitor by Sandra Grey

I made a goal to read as many of the Whitney Award nominated books as I could.  I have read 3 so far. The first one surprised me it got nominated.  Maybe it was the author's first book.  The author has a good writing style but her characters had no depth or closure. 
The 2nd book I enjoyed.
The 3rd book was fantastic.  Traitor by Sandra Grey was well written and researched.  There was always trouble.  No matter what to characters did to get out of trouble it somehow made it worse.  
The starts with Marie parachuting into France to work for  the American government and be with her fiance.  Marie has secrets of her own that gets her in trouble and taken as a prisoner. Events escalate: someone dies, couples fall in love, Marie is taken to a concentration camp and an exchange is made to keep her safe.
Good, clean, riveting book.  Good Job Ms. Grey!
I didn't know this book was the first in a series!  I am 7th in line for the next book, Tribunal.
