I was disappointed with this book. One, it jumped from present to past. Two, it was all third person so the reader had to figure out who felt what or did what from whatever people said or acted. It made the book feel cold to me and I never did connect with any of the characters. That said, it would have been a great plot if the reader could have gotten deeper into one of the characters and felt like a part of the story. Read til the end 'cause I kept hoping it would get better. When it ended, same thing. It just ended. Nothing really wrapped up from the main story. Lame.

Fantastic read-I couldn't put the book down. Spy thriller that has a surprise ending. Carrie McNeil is a naive young mother out of her depth when dealing with her CIA husband's disappearance. Many twists and turns.

Taken from the back cover--In Hong Kong a beautiful woman is pushed off a balcony to her death. In London a young American is gunned down outside the U.S. embassy. In Washington a senior CIA official vanishes into thin air. Random, unrelated events? Or pieces of the same puzzle?

From the back cover:

In Hong Kong a beautiful woman is pushed off a balcony to her death. In London a young American is gunned down outside the U.S. Embassy. In Washington a senior CIA official vanishes into thin ari. Random, unrelated events? Or pieces of the same puzzle?

These events are no accidents, it seems, when it is discovered that the woman in Hong Kong had a CIA lover. That the London murder was a case of mistaken identity, and the the intended target was the wife of CIA senior deputy Drum MacNeil, who has since gone missing.

To find MacNeil, investigators are taking a close look at his past actions, public and private. And at his restless wife, Carrie, who is doing her best to play the part of innocent victim, even though it's increasingly clear that Drum's life has been a carefully constructed lie.

Carrie MacNeil is about to learn firsthand about the evil of treachery. And in this business there are no fair-trade rules. It's always a liar'e market.
