Description

In this gripping new work of suspense from the author of The Double Game, a young woman discovers a nefarious truth at the heart of the CIA's operations in postwar Berlin and goes on the run for her life; years later she's gruesomely murdered along with her husband, and her daughter begins to chase down these startling secrets from her past. West Berlin, 1979. Helen Abell oversees the CIA's network of safe houses, rare havens for field agents and case officers amidst the dangerous milieu of a city in the grips of the Cold War. Helen's world is upended when, during her routine inspection of an agency property, she overhears a meeting between two people unfamiliar to her speaking a coded language that hints at shadowy realities far beyond her comprehension. Before the day is out, she witnesses a second unauthorized encounter, one that will place her in the sight lines of the most ruthless and powerful man at the agency. Her attempts to expose the dark truths about what she has witnessed will bring about repercussions that reach across decades and continents into the present day, when, in a farm town in Maryland, a young man is arrested for the double murder of his parents, and his sister takes it upon herself to find out why he did it.

Professional reviews

"Author Dan Fesperman narrates his latest spy thriller with a breathless intensity. The audiobook follows the stories of two heroines, mother and daughter, who are placed in danger because of dark deeds in the world of espionage. The mother, Helen, is a low-level C.I.A. operative stationed in West Berlin in 1979 whose job is to manage agency safe houses. She accidentally learns secrets and witnesses crimes that force her to go on the run and then be murdered 35 years later when she is a farm wife in Maryland. Fesperman does a fine job of portraying Helen's youth, idealism, and integrity. The other characters are also believable and well presented. This action-packed novel will keep the listener engrossed.
