I'm struggling to focus on my new #audiobook. I think it's me just having too much on my mind, but if I don't get into the zone by the end of my commute tomorrow, I may have to switch to print. #audible #commute #spynovel #espionage

Loved, loved this book about a fictional female spy in Argentina at the height of the Cold War. The chapters alternate between her time as “Anne” in Argentina, planting bugs and listening in on dissidents, and her life in Maryland and New York as Vera that leads her to the CIA. 4.5⭐️

@8little_paws didn‘t you really like her first book, too?

Cinfhen I keep seeing this book but hadn‘t seen many reviews 😍Thanks for posting and sharing 👍🏻 7mo
Megabooks @Cinfhen No problem! 👍🏻 I hope you enjoy it if you try it. It takes a few chapters to get her flow, but once you do, it‘s pretty great! 7mo
JennyM I read this one for the prompt too. I enjoyed it. A different kind of political intrigue! Glad you liked it too 7mo

An excellent thriller about an American reporter with gambling debts who agrees to smuggle a package over the German/Austrian border. When he delivers the package the reporter finds his contact murdered and himself on the run from his contact's allies and enemies. Oh, and the Austrian police like him for murder. Does what a thriller's supposed to do, and with style.

Behind the making of my novels. Countless hours...days...months...years....of writing and taking chess photos. I poured my soul into the series of King of Pawns. #spies #chess #dark #spynovel #psychological #newauthor #newadult #series #romance #historical #politicalfiction #noir #mafia

I feel like there were a few parts of this book that were missing tension they should have had. It was strangely cozy when it probably shouldn't have been. But I enjoyed it, anyway.

I've had this on hold since August but it's finally here; let's hope it's worth the wait.

Vera is a young spy in Argentina. Book jumps back and forth between present and her past that leads to her working for the CIA. It was an interesting character study and portrayal of what daily life as a spy is like but there was nothing particularly compelling. ⭐️⭐️⭐️. Picture at our local library where I finished listening to this one.
