Just listened to one of my favorite authors, Stephanie Barron/Francine Matthews, give an interview to The Joys of Binge Reading, and found out many fascinating things! Off to find a copy of this one now...

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

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

Finished this novel early this morning/late last night. The book was recommended by Tom Colgan, an editor with Penguin, on the spy genre podcast Spybrary (a pod worth a listen if you love the spy genre). It‘s a VERY SLOW BURN, but it pays off at the end. My only gripe is that I never bought into the relationship between Leamas and Liz. The ending punches you in the gut. #spynovel

My GR review: https://www.goodreads.com/review/show/2444072568?

DGRachel I love LeCarre‘s early work. Very slow burn, but always worth sticking it out to the end. 😊 2y
BillBlume @DGRachel this is my first time reading one of his books. I‘ll be checking out more of them. 2y
DGRachel My favorites are the George Smiley novels, of which this one is the third, but especially the Karla trilogy, which begins with Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy. 2y

A quick read, interesting and vibrant. Vera is an intriguing MC and the author gives us a peek into both the strained environment of the Cold War, and the challenges faced by the gay community in the 50‘s and 60‘s. #spynovel #queerreads #librarybook #girlscandoanything

ErinSueMreads That‘s a lot going on. Did it come together cohesively? 2y
WhiskeyMistress @ErinSueG it did, the chapters alternated between her adult life and flashbacks to her teen years. It flowed well for me and really developed her as a character 2y
ErinSueMreads Oh that‘s a great structure for that! 2y

SO GOOD. SO TIMELY. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Russia sets in motion a long-planned attack against Europe to retake Soviet-era territory, occupy and invade Europe, destroy all NATO defenses, and invade America. By first assassinating key NATO personnel & spreading misinformation, the Russians have laid a perfect chessboard. Will our allies and defense partners be invaded before they even know it?
