Product Details


Praise for Secrets of State

Secrets of State is a gut-churning international thriller whose all-too-real plotline makes one contemplate the dangers of the world in which we live.”—Huffington Post

“Palmer is a Foreign Service Officer himself and his experiences and knowledge provide a realistic backdrop to his novel. . . . An excellent political thriller that readers of both espionage stories and thrillers in general will enjoy.”—Library Journal

“Palmer uses his knowledge of how behind-the-scenes maneuvers actually work to great effect in this involving and frightening political thriller.”—Booklist

“Engaging . . . A well-written imagining of how India and Pakistan could be pushed to the brink of nuclear disaster.”—Kirkus Reviews

“A very intense thriller that will bring readers to the edge of a deadly conflict between the countries of India and Pakistan. . . . [A] fantastic read.”Suspense Magazine

Praise for The American Mission

“With their intelligence and humanity, Alex and Marie are easy characters to root for—but even the bad guys are well drawn and believable. . . . This is first-rate fiction. Let’s hope Palmer has a sequel in the works.”—Kirkus (starred review) 

“Palmer’s first novel offers an insider’s look at the world of American diplomats stationed in foreign countries. . . . Pair this one with John le Carré’s The Constant Gardener (2001).”—Booklist
