ABOUT THE BOOK
In this gripping new work of suspense from the author of The Double Game, a young woman discovers a nefarious truth at the heart of the CIA's operations in postwar Berlin and goes on the run for her life; years later she's gruesomely murdered along with her husband, and her daughter begins to chase down these startling secrets from her past.
West Berlin, 1979. Helen Abell oversees the CIA's network of safe houses, rare havens for field agents and case officers amidst the dangerous milieu of a city in the grips of the Cold War. Helen's world is upended when, during her routine inspection of an agency property, she overhears a meeting between two people unfamiliar to her speaking a coded language that hints at shadowy realities far beyond her comprehension. Before the day is out, she witnesses a second unauthorized encounter, one that will place her in the sightlines of the most ruthless and powerful man at the agency. Her attempts to expose the dark truths about what she has witnessed will bring about repercussions that reach across decades and continents into the present day, when, in a farm town in Maryland, a young man is arrested for the double murder of his parents, and his sister takes it upon herself to find out why he did it.
SAFE HOUSES by Dan Fesperman is an intense, captivating, and gripping novel that will keep you hooked from beginning to end, and keep you guessing every step of the way.
In 1979, Helen Abell works for the CIA and oversees their safe houses but when she records something that she was never supposed to hear, will she get rid of it like she is advised? And when she encounters another shady meeting, this will place her in the path of the most powerful man in their world.
Fast forward over thirty years and Helen and her husband are found murdered and all clues seem to point to their disabled son. But their daughter knows that her brother has never been violent and is determined to uncover the truth, even if it means digging into her parents past.
Compelling from the first page, I was immediately sucked into the murky world of espionage and double-crossing.
With plenty of danger, secrets, lies, and subterfuge, SAFE HOUSES by Dan Fesperman is a cracking story that is perfect for those who love a fast-paced, energetic thriller. Definitely a must-read for fans of Robert Ludlum and I highly recommend it to anyone who enjoys an action-packed, thrilling story.
