Recensione

"Kate Quinn follows her word-of-mouth bestseller, The Alice Network, with another compulsively readable historical novel ...[a] powerful novel about unusual women facing sometimes insurmountable odds with grace, grit, love and tenacity.” — Kristin Hannah, Washington Post

“Quinn deftly braids the stories of a female Russian bomber pilot, Nazi hunters, and a young Bostonian girl staring down evil in the most unthinkable of places.  The result is a searing tale of predator and prey, transgression and redemption and the immutable power of the truth. An utter triumph!” — Pam Jenoff, New York Times Bestselling Author of The Orphan’s Tale

“Prepare to be spellbound! The Huntress masterfully draws you in and doesn’t let you go. Another brilliant work of historical fiction by the incomparable Kate Quinn.”
Susan Meissner, bestselling author of As Bright as Heaven

The Huntress left me breathless with delight... Kate Quinn has created nothing less than a masterpiece of historical fiction.”
Jennifer Robson, bestselling author of Goodnight from London

“[A] complexly structured saga delivers exciting aerial sequences and intrigue worthy of a Hitchcock movie. The book’s psychological and dramatic elements combine for a powerful and satisfying finale. To paraphrase one of the characters, Ms. Quinn’s book is “dynamite in print.” — Wall Street Journal

“An impressive historical novel sure to harness WWII-fiction fans’ attention... Laced with Russian folklore allusions and deliciously witty banter, Quinn’s tale refreshingly avoids contrived situations while portraying three touching, unpredictable love stories; the suspenseful quest for justice; and the courage involved in confronting one’s greatest fears.” — Booklist (starred review)

“Readers should expect to give up weekend plans once they start this novel. A great choice for historical fiction fans, particularly of World War II–set novels, mystery readers, or anyone seeking well-crafted stories in which good triumphs over evil.”   — Library Journal (starred review)

“Well-researched and vivid segments are interspersed detailing Nina’s backstory... a fierce yet vulnerable antecedent to Lisbeth Salander. Quinn’s language is evocative of the period, and her characters are good literary company. With any luck, the Nazi hunting will go on for a sequel or two.” — Kirkus Reviews

“Quinn delivers a suspenseful WWII tale of murder and revenge. This exciting thriller vividly reveals how people face adversity and sacrifice while chasing justice and retribution.” — Publishers Weekly

“Gripping historical fiction”Good Housekeeping

“If you like period dramas, thrillers, female-fronted sagas, or all three, you’ll want to pre-order your copy soon.” — Marie Claire

“An intense and enthralling mystery. Meticulously researched…the texture and depth that is offered to the world Quinn’s characters inhabit make for an engrossing tale. In The Huntress Kate Quinn has created a gripping and elegant historical mystery— this one is not to be missed!” — BookBub

“The Huntress reads like the best World War II fiction. [An] engrossing, suspenseful, and authentic book to give you a new perspective on women, war, and the wheels of justice.” — NPR

“The author of the bestselling book The Alice Network is back with another engrossing (and deliciously long) novel...lots of threads means only one thing: lots of twists.” — Refinery 29

“Quinn’s narrative is full of suspense. Expertly plotted, with questions of justice at its center, The Huntress is a dark, riveting account of war, revenge and deep human compassion in the face of both” — Shelf Awareness

“It is brilliantly paced and impossible to put down.” — Mystery Scene

Dalla quarta di copertina

Nina Markova grows up on the icy edge of Soviet Russia, dreaming of flight and fearing nothing. When war arrives, she gambles everything to join the Night Witches, a female night bomber regiment wreaking havoc on Hitler&;s eastern front. But when she is downed behind enemy lines and thrown across the path of a Nazi murderess known as the Huntress, Nina must use all her wits to survive.

British war correspondent Ian Graham has witnessed the horrors of war and after the Nuremburg Trials, he abandons journalism to become a Nazi hunter. Yet one target eludes him: the Huntress. Ian must join forces with Nina, but a secret could derail their mission unless they confront it.

Seventeen-year-old Jordan McBride grows up in post&;World War II Boston, determined to become a photographer. At first delighted when her widowed father brings home a fianc&#233;e, Jordan becomes disquieted by the German widow who is hiding something. Armed with her camera and her wits, Jordan delves into her stepmother&;s past and discovers deeply buried mysteries. But Jordan&;s search for the truth may threaten all she holds dear.
