Codebreaker. Friend. Spy?

A thrilling, nail-biting YA mystery with themes of friendship,

loyalty, secrets, and a dash of romance.

'The appealing setting, nuanced

and flawed heroines and engaging plot make this a gripping

read' THE IRISH TIMES

'A tense and gripping period piece.' CHRIS SOUL

'Absolutely brilliant' FIONA SHARP, Waterstones

Bookseller

Wartime.

Pearl and Ellen work at top-secret codebreaking HQ, Bletchley

Park.

Pearl is the youngest. A messenger at sixteen, she’s untidy,

lively, bright, and half in love with the wrong boy, Richard.

Her circle of friends overlaps with his – the dashing young

men on their motorcycles who courier the secrets that Bletchley

deciphers.

Ellen is a codebreaker. Reserved, analytical and beautiful. She

never expected to get close to a girl like Pearl – or fall

for a chap like Dennis.

But when tragedy strikes, their logical world is upended, with

both friends caught in a spy plot that rocks the very heart of the

war effort. Who can they turn to now? Who can they trust? And

above all, can they unmask the traitor in their midst before it’s

too late?

Follows two young women, Pearl and Ellen, who are recruited

to work at Bletchley Park during the Second World War

Set in atmospheric 1940s England, The Secrets

Act also explores serious historical themes

Perfect for fans of Code Name Verity
