After the winter we just endured, who wouldn’t want to read a book set in Nassau, especially if you enjoy World War II-themed thrillers like The Nassau Secret (Wayland Square Editions, $18.95, 256 pages), Gregg Loomis’s intricately plotted eighth Lang Reilly thriller. The great weather is far from the only thing on the minds of the exiled Duke and Duchess of Windsor, one or both of whom may be Nazi spies. A pair of murders spur Reilly into action against a cultish group sworn to protect the royal family at all costs. Loomis deftly handles his historical subject matter with a seasoned hand, fashioning a classic spy thriller that reads like a hybrid of Alistair McClean and Graham Greene at their level bests. Solid in all respects.
