"A former undetected outlaw who ran with Bill Bagley's notorious gang during the Depression, Lena Stillman is now an elite codebreaker in a position to know the nation's strategic secrets. Good under pressure, good at keeping her mouth shut, Lena never had trouble keeping her double lives compartmentalized--at least not until Bill is sentenced to hang, and her old Clockwork Gang becomes newsworthy. Despite mounting fear that her secrets might be revealed, Lena excels at work and her skills attract new, unwanted attention. She is assigned to root out a spy at the Esquimalt base, and even her friends become suspects. Intricate and entertaining, Speakeasy is a riveting West Coast caper, but like enemy submarines patrolling offshore, deeper issues lurk below. With the violence of war encroaching on Canada's shores, Lena must grapple with her past and use all of her skills, linguistic and otherwise. She discovers that loyalty is simply a form of love. Who knows what causes it--or what revelations could make it disappear?"--Provided by publisher.
