Operation Blackbird (Brass Compass Series Book 2) by Ellen Butler – Review by Sheri Schrader

Operation BlackbirdOperation Blackbird by Ellen Butler
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Operation Blackbird is the second book in the Brass Compass series by Ellen Butler. Set in 1952, a CIA officer has to confront her past while saving a scientist trying to defect to East Berlin without alerting the KGB. You must grab this book if you enjoy historical thrillers with a strong female lead. I had already read the first book in this series, but this could be enjoyed as a standalone. Miriam Becker is a fantastic character who has seen the best and worst of people. I enjoy reading about her adventures because she is intelligent and very human. I enjoyed how the story differed from other spy thrillers dealing with the Cold War. There are sections I felt like I was holding my breath, waiting to find out what would happen.
I always enjoy this author’s books and look forward to reading more from her.
