Reminiscent of the work of John le Carre and Olen Steinhauser, this brilliant debut novel features a young State Department intern on the run in Turkey, trying to outwit and outmaneuver everyone from the Turkish president to Islamic extremists to the CIA. Racing to keep from being killed and to uncover the truth, Penny Kessler reluctantly partners with Connor Beauregard, a rookie CIA officer on his first overseas assignment. But the two won't survive unless they can trust each other and keep their wits about them. Print run 5,000.
