News and Reviews...
For The Turncoat's Widow
“Meticulously researched and excellently written, The Turncoat's Widow is exactly the book that any enthusiast of historical fiction would want to have in their hands immediately. A deeply rewarding slice of American history, mingled with romance and adventure.” – Lyndsay Faye, International bestselling author of JANE STEELE and THE GODS OF GOTHAM
“An exciting Revolutionary-era thriller with a twisty mystery, great characters, and historical accuracy to boot.” – Eleanor Kuhns, author of the Will Rees mysteries
With immaculate research and a deft historical touch, Mally Becker paints the compelling story of two reluctant spies for General George Washington as they face deadly stakes and endeavor to solve a mystery that could topple the American Revolution. – Michelle Cameron, author of Beyond the Ghetto Gates and The Fruit of Her Hands
For The Counterfeit Wife
With evocative prose and with an astonishing ability to make colonial history come alive, Mally Becker reminds readers just how fragile the early days of the Republic were. There’s romance, suspense and, for fans of historical fiction, the ongoing tense realization that there’s nothing counterfeit about the inequalities that continue to haunt our country. - Gabriel Valjan, Agatha and Anthony-nominated author of the Company Files series and the Shane Cleary Mystery series.
“The Counterfeit Wife by Mally Becker has it all — adventure, romance and deceit. The second book in the Revolutionary War Mysteries will sweep you up in the twists and turns of a suspenseful story about traitors, murderers and counterfeiters. Follow Becca and Daniel from Philadelphia’s high society to its back alleys and docks where we learn that there is more than one kind of counterfeiter at the heart of this story. Becker gives us a complex heroine in Rebecca Parcell. Conflicted about her attraction to Daniel, her partner in espionage, she comes into her own as a budding feminist. With smooth-as-ice prose and pitch-perfect dialogue, Becker has done it again. History and mystery lovers won’t want to miss the latest installment of the Revolutionary War Mysteries.” — Tina deBellegarde, Agatha and Derringer-nominated author of the Batavia-on-Hudson Mystery Series
