Description

'Both gripping and scarily plausible, from the first page to its chilling conclusion, The Cover Wife is a book that demands to be read' Kevin Wignall, author of A Death in SwedenThe latest sophisticated, suspenseful, and intensely human spy thriller from master of the genre Dan Fesperman transports the reader to Paris and Hamburg, and deep into the conspiracy behind the 9/11 attacks. Paris, October 1999. CIA agent Claire Saylor's career has stalled, thanks to unorthodox behaviour in her past.

So when she's told she'll be going undercover in Hamburg to pose as the wife of an academic who has published a controversial interpretation of the Quran's promise to martyrs, she assumes the job is a punishment.

But when she discovers her team leader is Paul Bridger, another Agency maverick, she realizes there may be more to this mission than meets the eye - and not just for professional reasons. Meanwhile, Mahmoud, a recent Moroccan e migre in Hamburg, has become involved with a group of radicals at his local mosque.

The deeper he's drawn into the group, the more he is torn between his obligations to them and his feelings toward a beautiful westernized Muslim woman. As Claire learns the truth about her mission, and Mahmoud grows closer to the radicals, their paths are on a collision course that could have disastrous repercussions far beyond the CIA.
