Nine years ago, terrorists hijacked a plane in Vienna.
Somehow, a rescue attempt staged from the inside went
terribly wrong and everyone on board was killed.
Members of the CIA stationed in Vienna during that time
were witness to this terrible tragedy, gathering intel
their sources during those tense hours, assimilating facts
from the ground with a series of texts coming from one of
their agents inside the plane. So when it all went wrong,
the question had to be asked: Had their agent been
compromised, and how?
Two of those agents, Henry Pelham and Celia Harrison, were
lovers at the time, and in fact that was the last night
they spent together. Until now. That night Celia decided
she’d had enough; she left the agency, married and had
children, and is living an ordinary life in the suburbs.
Henry is still an analyst, and has traveled to California
to see her one more time, to relive the past, maybe, or to
put it behind him once and for all.
But neither of them can forget that long-ago question: Had
their agent been compromised, and how? And each of them
also wonders what role tonight’s dinner companion might
have played in the way things unfolded.
All the Old Knives is Olen Steinhauer’s most
intimate, most cerebral, and most shocking novel to
date—from the New York Times bestselling author
deemed by many to be John le Carré’s heir apparent.
