"Like the city itself, Prague Summer is romantic and mysterious, with a refined literary bent." -Stewart O'Nan, author of West of Sunset Stefanie and Henry are Americans living in Prague. She works for the State Department; he is a rare books dealer. They live the life of a comfortably married couple-morning coffee at the same cafe every day, social events with the same small group of friends, a little too much to drink in the evenings, and a single episode of Poirot every night before bed. Until one day their world is turned upside down by an arrival from the States: Stefanie's old friend, Selma Al-Khateeb, whose husband has been mysteriously arrested and indefinitely imprisoned. At first it appears that Selma has come to escape her problems, but soon her reasons for coming to Prague appear more sinister and murky, and Stefanie and Henry's placid existence is changed in ways they couldn't have imagined. "Both highly literary and compulsively readable." -Ellen Sussman, New York Times-bestselling author of French Lessons "Tense and atmospheric, with characters every bit as compelling as the plot." -Steve Yarbrough, author of The Unmade World
