Praise

Praise for Dan Fesperman’s The Cover Wife:

“A sharp, smart novel that hits fast and hard, its reverberations echoing after the last page is turned. . . . Gripping. . . . As violence erupts and the truth unravels, we find ourselves in a thriller, one that is all the more chilling for running right into fact, and then diving straight into the darkest days of our own recent past. And here the author uncovers a deeper truth, about human limitations and the consequences of systemic failure. In the end, The Cover Wife lands like a punch in the heart, or an arrow finding its mark.” —David Gordon, New York Times Book Review

“[Fesperman] specializes in humanizing the internecine turf battles between and within competing intelligence agencies. With The Cover Wife, he has produced another intelligent, tense and sharply written espionage thriller.” —Tom Nolan, Wall Street Journal

“Fesperman uses . . . excruciating dramatic irony superbly, showing once more, as le Carré did, that spies are often their own worst enemies.” —Booklist

The Cover Wife smoothly incorporates a gripping plot with insightful character studies as Fesperman illustrates the thrill, frustration and challenges of those whose undercover personalities often overwhelm their humanity and their reality.” —Oline Cogdill, Shelf Awareness

“This is the thinking-man’s espionage book and the type of story you will have a difficult time not finishing in one sitting. Fesperman’s writing style does not overload you with data and acronyms, but makes you feel like you are there with the characters and experiencing each plot twist along with them. This brilliant read is not to be missed.” —BookReporter

“Gripping.” —Publishers Weekly

“An absorbing tale of terrorism with a tantalizing what-if at its core.” —Kirkus Reviews

“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 Sweden
