Summary, etc.:
"An exhilarating spy thriller about two women CIA agents who become intertwined around a threat to the Russia Division--one that's coming from inside the agency"-- Provided by publisher.

  • Booklist Reviews : Booklist Reviews 2021 February #1
    CIA case officer Lyndsey Duncan is recalled to Washington in disgrace from her post in Beirut after having an affair with a colleague. She's placed on administrative leave pending a hearing that will determine her future with the agency. So she's shocked when her former boss asks her to carry out a clandestine investigation to determine if there's a mole in the agency's Russia Division. A few days later, Lyndsey learns that Yaromir Popov, a CIA double agent whom she handled earlier in her career, has died of poisoning on a flight from Moscow to Washington. Not only that, but another Russian, also a CIA asset, has been brutally killed, and a third is missing. Lyndsey sees this as a strong indication that there is indeed a mole in the CIA—someone who's betraying every Russian on the CIA roster. This fast-paced spy thriller offers a seemingly realistic look inside the CIA and raises plenty of questions about the ethics of spying. With a smart, plucky heroine; white-knuckle suspense; multiple twists; and a satisfying conclusion, this is a must for espionage fans. Copyright 2021 Booklist Reviews.
