About the book:
Set during the Second World War, The Practice Field follows Emily Fitzpatrick and Jack Patterson’s treacherous journey through Nazi-occupied Europe on a covert mission to provide intelligence on the German war effort. McHugh weaves together themes of secrecy, loyalty and deceit in this thrilling, fast-paced story.
Focusing on Irish espionage – an aspect of the War which is rarely talked about – The Practice Field offers a fresh historical perspective and challenges our preconceived ideas about Ireland’s neutrality during the conflict.
Written in McHugh’s typical witty style, The Practice Field certainly is difficult to put down.
