Title
Two former female spies, bound together by their past, risk everything to hunt down an infamous Nazi doctor in the aftermath of World War II--in a pulse-pounding novel inspired by true events from the New York Times bestselling author of Lilac Girls.

American Josie Anderson and Parisian Arlette LaRue are heroes of the French resistance, stealing so many Nazi secrets that they become known as the Golden Doves, renowned across France and hunted by the Gestapo. Their courage will cost them everything. When they are arrested and taken to the Ravensbrück concentration camp, along with their loved ones, a shadowy Nazi doctor does unspeakable things to Josie's mother, a celebrated Jewish singer who had joined her daughter in Paris when the world seemed bright. And Arlette's son is stolen from her, seemingly never to be seen again.

A decade later the Doves fall headlong into a dangerous dual mission: Josie is working for U.S. Army Intelligence and accepts an assignment to hunt down the infamous doctor, while a mysterious man tells Arlette that he may have found her son. The Golden Doves embark on a quest across Europe and ultimately to French Guiana, discovering a web of terrible secrets, and must put themselves in grave danger to finally secure justice and protect the ones they love.

Martha Hall Kelly has garnered acclaim for her stunning combination of empathy and research into the stories of women throughout history and for exploring the terrors of Ravensbrück. With The Golden Doves, she has crafted an unforgettable story about the fates of Nazi fugitives in the wake of World War II--and the unsung female spies who risked it all to bring them to justice.
