9780062337245: The Swimmer: A Novel

A deep-cover CIA agent races across Europe to save the daughter he never knew in this electrifying debut thriller—an international sensation billed as “Homeland meets Stieg Larsson” that heralds the arrival of a new master sure to follow in the footsteps of Stieg Larsson, John Le Carré, and Graham Greene.

In the end, you cannot hide who you are.

Klara Walldéen was raised by her grandparents on a remote archipelago in the Baltic Sea, learning to fish and hunt and sail a boat through a storm. Now, as an EU Parliament aide in Brussels, she is learning how to navigate the treacherous currents of international politics: the lines between friend and enemy, truth and lies.

But Klara has accidentally seen something she shouldn’t have: a laptop containing information so sensitive that someone will kill to keep hidden. Suddenly, she is thrown into a terrifying chase across Europe, with no idea who is hunting her or why.

Meanwhile, in Virginia, an old spy hides from his past. Once, he was a man of action, an operative so dedicated that he abandoned his infant daughter to keep his cover. Now, he is the only man who can save Klara . . . and she is the only woman who can allow him to lay old ghosts to rest.

From the Back Cover:

On a remote Swedish island, a little girl, Klara, grows up without a father. Now, thirty years later, she discovers a secret—one for which powerful men will kill to keep undisclosed.

On the other side of the world, an old spy hides from his past. He used to be the best agent in the field. These days the only thing he lives for is swimming in the local pool.

When Klara is thrown into a terrifying chase across Europe, only the Swimmer can save her. But time is running out. . . .

Utterly mesmerizing and harrowing, The Swimmer is a riveting read right up to its stunning conclusion.

A deep-cover CIA agent races across Europe to save the daughter he never knew in this electrifying, “hypnotic” debut thriller  (Entertainment Weekly).
