Nineteen-year-old Charlie St. Clair is thrust onto the stage of history when she is recruited by the Alice Network, a secret society of women who pass information from one generation to the next. Her assignment: find Eddie Deacon, assumed dead since 1918 and believed to be concealing blackout secrets that could shake up English society forever. Queen Victoria’s spymaster Sir Maurice has tasked Charlie with an impossible mission: investigate rumors that Edward VII was involved with German intelligence during World War I, leading to British defeat on the battlefield. A century later, Nina Browning Everly confronts her destiny as one three members of The Alice Network entrusted with protecting Maud Young (Queen Victoria’s great-granddaughter), all while investigating contemporary threats alongside handsome American agent Will Mitchelson). But as technology brings old secrets vividly back into light, dangerous new rivals emerge both within and outside The Alice Network…forcing agents past and present into a race against time that will put everything at stake once more.
