Library Journal Review

In 1979 West Berlin, Helen Abell works for the CIA managing safe houses. Her shrewd observation skills mark her as an agency employee who should be a field agent; in more gender-restricted 1979, she's relegated to glorified house-mothering. When Helen uncovers disturbing information about an agent, she acts, setting off a complex and dangerous chain of events with far-reaching consequences. In 2014 Maryland, a young man in between jobs lives quietly next door to a farmhouse where domestic violence suddenly strikes. Henry Mattick can't resist investigating the double homicide-a longtime farming couple murdered in their bed by their developmentally disabled son Willard. When Willard's sister Anna returns home to help Willard and try to grasp the situation, Henry agrees to assist. Their journey to the truth sends them down surprisingly dangerous paths, while Helen's narrative races toward them at a breakneck speed. VERDICT Fesperman (Lie in the Dark) delivers a breathtaking, intricate international spy novel unnervingly on point for the #MeToo moment. Recommended for enthusiasts of FX's The Americans looking for a fix as the show's final season draws to a close.
