    As a native Victorian and has worked at the base, this was a fun read with a number of details of 1920s-30s Victoria; I quite enjoyed that aspect. While it seemed the author had done plenty of research of the City's past to drum of these tidbits, there were some striking inaccuracies in these details. Two that really stood was the referring to the Johnson Street Bridge as the 'Blue Bridge', as it commonly known; the bridge was completed in 1924, but was actually black in colour until around 1980 [...]

    Alisa Smith is also a co-author of The 100-Mile Diet enpedia/wiki/The_100 I can't seem to recall how I heard of Speakeasy - likely a review in the newspaper - but I put a hold on it at the library. It is historical fiction taking place mainly in Victoria and neighbouring Esquimalt BC. Lena is a codebreaker in the Canadian government Examination Unit during WWII vs the Japanese in the Pacific - but earlier she had been involved with a bank robber gang - the story, told by Lena in 1942 and in a jo [...]

    I like historical fiction, and this first novel is a very good example of the genre. It weaves together what I would call the "Bonnie & Clyde" bank robbery era of the 1930s and the interception of coded messages in World War II (1940-1941). It's set on the West Coast - the border between Washington State and British Columbia - so there are all those inlets to hide in, and the police of two countries to content with in the 1930s, and the "take over" is perhaps a strong word for the American [...]

    This book was difficult to get into as within the first few chapters the narrating voice changed with no warning. One minute it was a male voice the next a female. This was rather off putting and required me to flip back to the beginning to see if I had gotten the POV wrong. There did not appear to be much of a story line - just a series of heists on the west coast by the Clockwork Gang in the 1930's interspersed with flash forwards in one of the two narrating voices. Sometimes the voice would b [...]

    It's a good story set in British Columbia and Washington during the 1930s and then into WW2. The story is intriguing and the author is from BC, which was one of the reasons I bought the book. It reads like two parallel stories with the bank robbing gang raging around BC and Washington and the code breaker working in Victoria. The book moves back and forth between those two settings. I'd like to have seen more about Victoria and the navy base during the war years. I also wondered why the code bre [...]

    Female code breaker with an interesting past that is tied to a bank robbing gang centered in BC. It is a lot of fun. I enjoyed it and some of the references to Prohibition.

    I like the idea and the setting behind the storyline, but there was no suspense build up and I wasn't enjoying the alternating narratives.
