An astonishing thriller from the author of "The Company"
A classic among espionage aficionados, "The Sisters" features what the "New York Times" called "the plot of plots." Centering on Francis and Carroll, two enigmatic and extremely dangerous CIA legends dubbed "the Sisters Death and Night," "The Sisters" masterfully unveils an abyss of artful deception. By luring the Potter, a former head of the KGB sleeper school, into betraying his last and best assassin living secretly in the United States, Francis and Carroll set off a desperate race against time as the Potter tries to stop his protege from committing the Sisters' exquisitely planned, world-shattering crime."

About Robert Littell

Robert Littell was born, raised, and educated in New York. A former "Newsweek" editor specializing in Soviet affairs, he left journalism in 1970 to write fiction full time. Connoisseurs of the spy novel have elevated Robert Littell to the genre's highest ranks, and Tom Clancy wrote that if Robert Littell didn t invent the spy novel, he should have. He is the author of fifteen novels, including the "New York Times" bestseller "The Company and Legends," the 2005 "L.A. Times" Book Award for Best Thriller/Mystery. He currently lives in France."
