Just when U.S. WAVE Livvy Delacourt thinks she and her team of psychic Nazi hunters are ready for whatever The Reich can throw at them, Hitler adds to the mix a spy who also happens to be a wizard. Now dark magic is being used to attack U.S. facilities and Livvy must match wits with an evil wizard, whose objective is to destroy Operation Delphi and all her team. If she fails to ramp up her psychic powers, she may perish—and perhaps cause the U.S. to lose the war with Germany while she’s at it.

The pacing is brisk, the wizardry warfare unique. Readers will be swept away by this spellbinding tale of espionage and illusion. Patricia Simpson, Award winning Author

Ainsworth has penned a riveting story full of mysticism, intrigue, and nail-biting suspense. Affaire de Coeur Magazine

This look into the world of ‘The Greatest Generation’ has the heart-warming feel of a cosy mystery with the kick of a good thriller. The amazing effect for good strength of character can have is for certain, but you may just find yourself believing in the power of the unknown. Christine London, Award winning author of novels with a Brit Twist


Expect Deception delivers a rousing tale set in a time when the stakes are high, and there are severe consequences. The intrepid spunk and dogged determination of Livvy finds her match in Trey’s grounded scientific approach. The characters are vivid, the mystery is compelling, and the punch line at the end will have the reader eager for the next book in the Operation Delphi series.
