Diana Deverell was a U.S. Foreign Service officer in such places as San Salvador and Poland. So when she has the central character of her tough and moving debut thriller give us inside details of a State Department agency dedicated to fighting terrorists, they have the smack and tang of reality. Kathryn "Casey" Collins finds her work becoming personal and very dangerous when her renegade Polish intelligence agent-lover Stefan Krajewski appears to have been one of the 200-plus victims in the bombing of an airliner on the 10th anniversary of the Lockerbie massacre. When Casey tries to do some freelance digging, she somehow becomes one of the bad guys--targeted by the FBI for possible involvement in the bombing. Also hot on her trail are the terrorists themselves, looking for revenge for the role she and Stefan played in nabbing the original Lockerbie villains. Add to the mix an inscrutable Danish Lutheran priest and Army officer (known as Father-Major) now running a covert intelligence operation and you have a milieu worthy of the best of Len Deighton, if not John Le Carré. With those and other masters of the espionage genre making increasingly rare appearances these days, it's good to have someone as skilled as Deverell arriving so stylishly on the scene. --Dick AdlerAbout the Author:
