Klara Walldeen was raised by her grandparents on a remote archipelago in the Baltic Sea. Now, as an EU Parliament aide in Brussels, she must navigate international politics: the lines between friend and enemy, truth and lies. But Klara has accidentally seen information so sensitive that someone will kill to keep it hidden. Suddenly, she is thrown into a terrifying chase across Europe. Meanwhile, in Virginia, an old spy hides from his past. Once, he was a man of action, so dedicated that he abandoned his infant daughter to keep his cover. Now, he is the only man who can save Klara " and she is the only woman who can allow him to lay old ghosts to rest.

Professional reviews

"The dual narration by Peter Ganim and Elisabeth Rodgers helps track the meandering plot of this international thriller, but, disappointingly, it doesn't do much more. With alternating points of view, geographic locations, and time periods, listeners can easily find themselves lost. The story about a spy, voiced by Ganim, and the daughter he never knew, voiced by Rodgers, also contains a plethora of subplots and characters who overshadow the daughter, making a second male narrator seem more appropriate than a female one. The extraneous content also weighs down the momentum of the novel; both narrators echo that sluggish pace, causing the listener to question the label of "thriller." Fans of the genre can safely bypass this audiobook. J.F. © AudioFile 2015, Portland, Maine"
