The Norwegian Assassin

(The fourth book in the Resistance Girl series)
A novel by

Vienna, 1938

Her family’s gone. Her fiancé taken from her. Esther Weiss sees only one way to fight back.

Life is good for Esther and her Jewish family until Hitler annexes their home country Austria. Her wedding to fiancé Carl Bernstein is postponed, and her family's entire life is uprooted.

Thinking they’ll be safe in Oslo, the Weiss’s hope is short-lived when Norway is invaded in 1940 and the fascist Quisling Regime is put into place. Esther returns home one day to discover her entire family has been deported. Gone. Without a trace.

Something snaps inside Esther. The soft-hearted, gentle girl is no longer. Her desire to fight the enemy becomes her only drive. She joins the Norwegian resistance movement and with her blond hair and light eyes, all it takes is a false passport to give Esther the freedom she needs. The freedom to kill. No German or Norwegian fascist is safe when she’s nearby.

Destruction of those who took her family gives Esther a license to live, but it has also hardened her heart. Not even Tore Helberg, her rock and protector in the Resistance movement, is able to break through the walls she’s placed around her heart.

When all she loves is gone, and only hate remains, can the Norwegian Assassin reopen her heart and find love again?
