Description

PERFECT HUSBAND. PERFECT FATHER. PERFECT LIAR?

`You'll devour this terrific debut like the rest of us, skipping lunch, losing sleep, turning pages until the end.' JOHN GRISHAM

`Hold on tight! What a story, brilliantly told. A gripping espionage thriller with real psychological depth. More modern than tomorrow.' TERRY HAYES

Vivian Miller is a CIA analyst assigned to uncover Russian sleeper cells in the USA. After accessing the computer of a potential Russian spy, she stumbles on a secret dossier of deep-cover agents living in her own country. Five seemingly normal people living in plain sight.

A few clicks later, everything that matters to Vivian is threatened - her job, her husband, even her four children . . .

Vivian has vowed to defend her country against all enemies, foreign and domestic. But now she's facing impossible choices. Torn between loyalty and betrayal, allegiance and treason, love and suspicion, who can she trust?

Will her next move be the right one?

`Prediction: if you read chapter one, you'll read chapter two. If you read chapter two, you'll miss dinner, stay up far too late, and feel tired at work tomorrow. This is that kind of book. Superb.' LEE CHILD

P. DELANEY, author of THE GIRL BEFORE * "This compulsive, clever thriller will have you reading long into the night." * Red * "If you liked THE COUPLE NEXT DOOR, try NEED TO KNOW by Karen Cleveland . . .
