Auntie’s Bookstore is overjoyed to announce that we will be hosting, and hope you’ll join us to hear, New York Times Bestselling author Kate Quinn. Kate is the author of “The Alice Network” and “Mistress of Rome”. Kate will be joining us to discuss her newest work of historical fiction - “The Huntress”! Kate will read, answer questions from her book, and sign copies for readers in attendance. For fans of World War II based fiction and mystery intrigue, this is a must-read.
Inspired by the true story of Nazis living in plain sight in post-WWII America, “The Huntress” is a richly detailed, audacious adventure that crisscrosses continents in pursuit of a notorious Third Reich war criminal. It also dives into the little-known history and heroics of the Soviet Union’s all-female bomber regiment called the Night Witches who served during World War II. Quinn has built her career on finding new angles and untold stories in history and with “The Huntress”, she tackles fascinating elements of WWII history that have yet to be prominently covered.

ABOUT THE BOOK (Courtesy of Publisher):
From the author of the New York Times and USA Today bestselling novel, “The Alice Network”, comes another fascinating historical novel about a battle-haunted English journalist and a Russian female bomber pilot who join forces to track the Huntress, a Nazi war criminal gone to ground in America.
In the aftermath of war, the hunter becomes the hunted...
Bold and fearless, Nina Markova always dreamed of flying. When the Nazis attack the Soviet Union, she risks everything to join the legendary Night Witches, an all-female night bomber regiment wreaking havoc on the invading Germans. When she is stranded behind enemy lines, Nina becomes the prey of a lethal Nazi murderess known as the Huntress, and only Nina's bravery and cunning will keep her alive.
Transformed by the horrors he witnessed from Omaha Beach to the Nuremberg Trials, British war correspondent Ian Graham has become a Nazi hunter. Yet one target eludes him: a vicious predator known as the Huntress. To find her, the fierce, disciplined investigator joins forces with the only witness to escape the Huntress alive: the brazen, cocksure Nina. But a shared secret could derail their mission unless Ian and Nina force themselves to confront it.
Growing up in post-war Boston, seventeen-year-old Jordan McBride is determined to become a photographer. When her long-widowed father unexpectedly comes homes with a new fiancée, Jordan is thrilled. But there is something disconcerting about the soft-spoken German widow. Certain that danger is lurking, Jordan begins to delve into her new stepmother's past--only to discover that there are mysteries buried deep in her family . . . secrets that may threaten all Jordan holds dear.
In this immersive, heart-wrenching story, Kate Quinn illuminates the consequences of war on individual lives, and the price we pay to seek justice and truth.
