In this brilliant debut thriller, reminiscent of the works
of John le Carre and Olen Steinhauer and infused with the
authenticity of the author’s travels, a young American State
Department intern based in Turkey becomes “the woman who
knows too much” and is marked for death.
Kessler, an intern at the US Embassy in Ankara, Turkey,
wakes up in a hospital on the morning of July 5th to find
herself at the center of an international crisis. The day
before, the Embassy was the target of a devastating
terrorist attack that killed hundreds of Penny’s friends and
colleagues. Not only has a photograph of Penny as she
emerged from the rubble become the event’s defining image,
but for reasons she doesn’t understand, her bosses believe
she’s a crucial witness.
Suddenly, everyone is
intensely interested in what Penny knows. But what does she
know? And whom can she trust? As she struggles to piece
together her memories, she discovers that Zach Robson, the
young diplomat she’d been falling for all summer, went
missing during the attack. And one of the CIA’s most
powerful officials, Christina Ekdahl, wants people to
believe Zach was a traitor.
Penny barely has time to ask before
she discovers that her own government wants her dead. Soon,
with only a single ally—a rookie intelligence officer fresh
out of the Navy—she is running a perilous gauntlet,
ruthlessly pursued by Turkey’s most powerful forces and by
To survive, Penny must furiously improvise.
Tradecraft takes a lifetime to master. She has less than
thirty-six hours. And she’s only twenty-one years old. This
is her first real test—one she can’t fail.
