Meet Kitty Larsson

The Diplomat’s Wife

A WW2 Espionage Series

She shoots, plays cards and charms people into feeding her intel they normally wouldn’t.

As the daughter of a U.S. Senator, Kitty Larsson is no stranger to politics and can assuredly claim she has no interest in it. But when she falls in love with Dr. Edgar Ragatz, a charming, Austrian diplomat, her new life in Vienna lands her in the middle of a geopolitical chess match. The Nazis annex Austria and Kitty’s best friends – betrayed by the Allied nations – are in dire straits, with nowhere to turn. Except Kitty could break the rules to save them. Is she prepared to betray the man she loves…? And when the war encompasses the world, will she switch allegiances altogether?

And why is Edgar so keen on climbing up the ranks of the new regime?
