What if your sense of duty required you to betray the man you love? One woman struggles to choose between her honor and her heart in this enthralling espionage drama that deftly hops between New York and West Africa. Its 1986, the heart of the Cold War, and Marie Mitchell is an intelligence officer with the FBI. Shes brilliant, but shes also a young black woman working in an old boys club. Her career has stalled out, shes overlooked for every high-profile squad, and her days are filled with monotonous paperwork. So when shes given the opportunity to join a shadowy task force aimed at undermining Thomas Sankara, the charismatic, revolutionary president of Burkina Faso whose Communist ideology has made him a target for American intervention, she says yes. Yes, even though she secretly admires the work Thomas is doing for his country. Yes, even though she is still grieving over the mysterious death of her sister, whose example led Marie to this career path in the first place. Yes, even though a furious part of her suspects shes being offered the job because of her appearance and not her talent. In the year that follows, Marie will observe Thomas, seduce him, and ultimately have a hand in the coup that will bring him down. But doing so will change everything she believes about what it means to be a spy, a lover, a sister, and a good American. Inspired by true eventsThomas Sankara is known as Africas Che Guevarathis novel knits together a gripping spy thriller, a heartbreaking family drama, and a passionate romance. This is a face of the Cold War youve never seen before, and it introduces a powerful new literary voice. Advance praise for American Spy Echoing the stoic cynicism of Hurston and Ellison, and the verve of Conan Doyle, American Spy lays our complicitiespolitical, racial, and sexualbare. Packed with unforgettable characters, its a stunning book, timely as it is timeless.Paul Beatty, Man Booker Prizewinning author of The Sellout American Spy is by turns suspenseful, tender, and funny, always smart and searingly honest. Lauren Wilkinson renders the world of spies with vivacity and depth, but like all great novels, this one teaches us the most about ourselves and our values, shining a penetrating light on what its like to be a black woman in America.Sara Novi?, author of Girl at War

I‘m not sorry I read this book, but it wasn‘t what I was expecting. It‘s not a fast paced “thriller” by any means. It‘s more about US policy, politics and bad governance. I enjoyed Bahni Turpin‘s narration. 3 stars #ReadingAfrica22 #BurkinaFaso

TrishB I couldn‘t finish this one. 6h
ChaoticMissAdventures I could finish this either, but it sounded so interesting. I do love Bahni Turpin... Maybe the audio is better than the physical? 5h

📚 Jane Austen at Home - really enjoying this buddy read with the Pemberlittens - I'm enjoying all the comments - a high 4 🌟!
📱 Tagged - only just started for #burkinafaso but think it will be at least 4.
🎧 This Much is True by Miriam Margolyes. Hilarious so far but it's a bit strange hearing an 81 year old calling her parents 'mummy & daddy' 😂 I'm guessing 5 🌟

Physical and kindle, yes - audio no

Marie becomes a spy to follow her sister‘s dream, leading her to infiltrate the highest levels of #BurkinaFaso government. I enjoyed the story, the tidbits about espionage, the romance, the two little boys, etc. Readers get a significant dose of detail about the small African country, although it seems to take forever before we get to it. My only regret is that it ended on a cliffhanger and there‘s no indication there will be another book. ⬇️

I found this map of Africa on the internet to start coloring the countries I‘ve read for #readingafrica2022. It‘s outdated because there is no South Sudan and the Democratic Republic of Congo is still identified as Zaire. But it‘s working for my purposes. For books in progress, like the tagged book, I‘ve drawn vertical lines in case I end up bailing on those books.

This has been on my TBR forever and I finally read it because it‘s my #DoubleSpin for January. I enjoyed this though it wasn‘t really a spy novel in the way I expected. It‘s more about a woman and the choices she makes and how they match those of her sister. The device of her writing this to her sons as she goes off on a dangerous mission means it ends without resolution.

TheAromaofBooks Woohoo!! 4mo

Though this was an interesting look at the role of a Black woman in espionage during the Cold War, I found the pacing uneven and the main character difficult to relate to. The final chapters were pretty intense, though!

Marie joins the FBI because of her sister and ultimately ends up helping the CIA with an operation around the president of Burkina Faso. This tells the story she is writing to her children as she heads into danger. I didn‘t totally connect with the way she decided to tell the story, but I really liked the story itself, though the ending is unsatisfying. The characters are terrific.

Nuclear war preoccupied my mind, my sister's mind, the minds of all of our friends. None of us expected to see adulthood. More than just being convinced we were going to die, we knew we would be annihilated, which to me meant being somehow deader than dead. I don't know if you'll be able to understand the stranglehold that cold war terror had on the psychology of my generation. We were kids who wondered what we would do if we grew up, not when.

There were so many places this story could go and really explore... instead it was boring, included too much political theory & strategy, and had a blah non-ending. I think it maybe was trying for too much all at once. The narrator for the audio was fantastic- no fault of hers.

This is an odd read - slow to build, not entirely convincing in many ways, and led by a mostly unlikable narrator - and yet I found myself rapt. If you love a book that makes you put it down every now and again, diving down the online bunny holes for info on what really happened, try this.

I wanted to like this so much more than I did, especially since it was narrated by Bahni Turpin. She was amazing as usual, but for a book about a spy it was just way too boring. There was so much story that did not need lend itself to the plot and even the action was not compelling. I give it 3 stars.

This didn‘t work for me. It didn‘t feel like a spy thriller - no suspense or action (first 100 pages). It might be more literary fiction and at times I was engaged with a scene & had a sense of Marie & her relationships but those were too few & far between. Written in second person to her sons which I didn‘t like. Jumping back in time so it felt like any action was historical with no tension. Procedural writing telling us about FBI.

Bandrea I‘m listening to this right now and I love Bahni Turpin‘s narration but I just haven‘t got to where I care about the characters yet. The jury is still out. 2y

Can‘t decide if this is a spy novel w/a literary fiction bent or a lit fic novel about a woman who happens to be a spy. Don‘t think the author ever decided, either. Didn‘t hate it but def had some issues. Behind-the-scenes Fed stuff was interesting but dragged a bit. Loved Marie‘s backstory, but being both multi-timeline & framing the present as a letter to her sons was a bit much. Plus what happened while she was undercover was a bit 🙄 3/5 ⭐️

Abailliekaras Reading this at the moment and feeling the same way! It does not feel like a spy thriller. The letter to her sons annoys me but maybe because I‘ve just read ‘heartland‘ which Sarah smarsh for some reason framed as a letter to her child who she never had. 😬🙄 2y

MsMelissa I commented on your other post, but I doubt your views will change. The whole narrative is slow-moving. I really liked it, but you need to be in the mood and it would probably help if readers go into reading it knowing it‘s not a typical, fast-moving spy thriller. @squirrelbrain 2y

I'm finding the chapters involving Marie's sons to be quite engaging. The spy chapters on the other hand are a bit dull. Too many thriller books and movies before this one, making me think spies live a high-octane life, when it turns out they're buried in paperwork avalanches and battling office politics just like the rest of us.

FBI agent Marie Mitchell is an African American woman in a workplace of the good old boys. Her new assignment is to spy on, seduce, and help overthrow the Communist leader that the US has decided needs an intervention. But this job isn‘t all she‘s been lead to believe and it will change everything.

This framing (a journal to her sons) wouldn‘t have worked for me in print. Too much tell, not enough show. Turpin‘s narration lifted this.🌕🌕🌕🌕🌑

This novel is about a brilliant black female FBI agent who finds herself tricked into working for people with a hidden objective. The decisions she later makes cause her to fear for her safety for the rest of her life. Although this story held so much promise, it fell short for me- scenarios that didn‘t quite add up for the protagonist.The narration by Bahni Turpin was stellar, as always.I will continue to select any and every book she narrates!
