The Spy Coast by Tess Gerritsen: My honest thoughts on the book’s plot, characters, and overall impact.

After giving up her job at the CIA in Seattle, Vanessa Michael Munroe deals with her past as a spy in a small town in Maine in this new twist to spy novels by New York Times best-selling author Tess Gerritsen.

Maggie Bird was a spy who settled in Purity, Maine, after a mission she had to perform, resulting in her retiring early. It’s a serene life that comes under pressure, as a corpse is discovered in her driveway, indicating that danger is lurking from her past.

Maggie, a retired CIA agent, seeks the help of her retired comrades, known as the Martini Club, to solve who is behind her targeting. Even though the group members are now retired and do not perform the necessary actions in real life, they know and can deal with this perilous situation.

Adding to the conflict is Jo Thibodeau, the acting police chief hired by Purity, who harbours distrust towards Maggie and her secrecy and association with individuals like Cob. When Jo stumbles on them and her work is entwined with the Martini Club, Maggie has to embrace who she is to fight for what she wants.

‘The Spy Coast is another novel by Tess Gerritsen that I thoroughly enjoyed reading because of the suspense interwoven within the backdrop of a picturesque seaside town. What enriches the movie is the conflict with fully developed and interesting characters, as well as a plot that has a lot of interesting moments for the readers to get into as they try to discover more about Maggie Bird’s past and her present life.
