The incredible spy thriller inspired by Josephine Baker’s Secret war against the Nazis.

In 1925, racism and a burgeoning career overseas, drove nineteen-year-old Josephine Baker to leave America and move to Paris, where she soon became a huge hit - singing, dancing and staring in movies.

By 1937, her wild performances had become legendary, and her eccentric personal life was the talk of Paris and beyond. She was the highest paid performer in all of Europe and publicly ambivalent about the war raging around her. But Josephine knew what hatred and bigotry looked like. So, when a handsome fugitive showed up at her doorstep one night, running from the Nazis, she joined him and the French Resistance, using her celebrity to spy behind enemy lines.

At first, she carried secret messages gleaned from high-ranking French or Nazi admirers. But her clandestine work quickly escalated into a dangerous race to help America, the country she hated for its bigotry, prepare for its first mass mobilization of WWII.

"High stakes and engaging characters make for a thrilling story." - Advanced Review

Fans of Cabareand Carol will love this wartime thriller.

When HARPER JAMESON graduated from Brown University with a history degree, there was no inkling that a career as a writer would follow. After running a successful business for years, then launching the Social Impact Conference to support business owners, artists, and activists dedicated to positive social change, Harper realized that storytelling was fundamental to improving the world and that history housed the greatest stories of them all. Harper especially enjoys finding important but forgotten, or misunderstood, figures from the past and bringing them back to life.
