Travel to Berlin in 1939 is treacherous. Carrying out two clandestine missions in the enemy capital could prove deadly.


When a Quaker Kindertransport chaperone is murdered in the East End of London, Britain’s counterintelligence spymaster tasks Olivia Denis to join the group rescuing children from Nazi Germany. Olivia must find not only a killer, but a traitor relaying sensitive material to the enemy.


Once they reach Berlin, Olivia discovers she must rescue the family of an imprisoned British spy before she leaves the next day. An attack convinces Olivia the family’s two young sons are in grave danger, but where to hide them?


Can she protect the boys before they become the traitor’s next victims?


Deadly Travel, Book Five of the Deadly series, is for fans of World War II era spy thrillers and classical cozy mysteries, of intrepid lady sleuths with spunk and smarts. No explicit cursing, sex, or violence.


Continue your journey today into Olivia’s world of intrigue in London in the days leading up to war.


About Kate Parker

Kate Parker caught the reading bug early, and the writing bug soon followed. She’s always lived in a house surrounded by books and dust bunnies. After spending a dozen years in North Carolina, she moved to Colorado. The Rocky Mountains are beautiful, but she’d developed a love of wide rivers, warmer and wetter weather, and fast-growing greenery that sent her hurrying back to North Carolina.

Deadly Travel is the fifth book in the Deadly Series, and Kate’s plan is to follow it quickly with Deadly Darkness, both set in 1939 in the days leading up to war. There are at least three more of the Deadly Series coming that will bring the beginning of the war to Olivia’s doorstep. Kate reports that she is having fun creating new stories to entertain readers and chaos to challenge her characters.

My Review

This story takes place during a very dangerous time in Europe, 1939, no one knew when the boarders were going to close in most countries.
These kind hearted people take risks and go and bring Jewish children out of Germany, before it is too late. In hind sight we know what happened here, but trying to put myself in the shoes of those parents and sending my precious children to the unknown, what a sacrifice. The group doing this are Quakers, pacifists, and yet one of their own is murdered, but it must be an outsider, they are peaceful people.
This is book 5 in this series and we are back with Olivia Denis, and yes it can be run alone, a trusted Reporter and most important a great help to British counterintelligence, and is asked to help with the transport, and to maybe find out who the killer is.
This is a page turning read, and it will keep your attention right to the end.
I wanted a longer visit here!
I received this book through Great Escapes Book Tours and was not required to give a positive review.
