A riveting novel of international suspense from acclaimed author and veteran diplomat Matthew Palmer.

Twenty years after the Srebrenica massacre that claimed the life of his friend and colleague, Eric Petrosian is back in Sarajevo at the American embassy, and the specter of war once again hangs over the Balkans. The Bosnian Serb leader, who had for a time been seeking a stable peace, has turned back to his nationalist roots and is threatening to pull Bosnia apart in a bloody struggle for control . . . and behind him is a shadowy mafia figure pulling the strings. As Eric is dragged deeper into the political maelstrom and uncovers a plot of blackmail and ruthless ambitions, Eric is faced with an impossible choice: use the information he’s uncovered to achieve atonement for the past or use it to shape the future.

About the Author:

Matthew Palmer is a twenty-five-year veteran of the U.S. Foreign Service and a member of the Council on Foreign Relations, currently serving as the director for multilateral affairs in the State Department’s Bureau of Asian and Pacific Affairs.  Palmer has worked as a diplomat all over the world, but his ties to the Balkans are especially deep.  In addition to a serving as the desk officer for rump Yugoslavia (Serbia and Montenegro) through the end of the 1999 Kosovo conflict, Palmer was posted twice to the American Embassy in Belgrade, initially as a first-tour officer at the height of the war in Bosnia and, more recently, as political counselor.  In that position, he played a leading role in securing the “April 19 Agreement” that started Serbia and Kosovo down the road toward normalization.  Palmer speaks fluent Serbo-Croatian, and his many experiences in the region served as inspiration for The Wolf of Sarajevo.

Review:

Praise for The Wolf of Sarajevo

"Thrilling....The aura of authenticity on the smaller scale helps lend gravity to plot twists .... Palmer...has a pungent style, particularly adept at showing what one character calls the ‘knee-jerk cowardice of bureaucracies.’”—The New York Times Book Review
 
“A gripping adventure... Fans of thrillers are sure to love this intricate and tense story, and fans of history will appreciate Palmer’s careful plotting.”—Bookish

“Meticulously crafted . . . Palmer’s 25 years in the U.S. Foreign Service serve him well in this suspenseful, briskly paced novel.”—Publishers Weekly
 
“A fast-paced, action-packed, well-plotted thriller that will more than satisfy espionage fiction fans.”—Library Journal
 
“Suspenseful . . . Well-written, exciting, and fast-paced fiction by a diplomat with deep knowledge of the Balkans.”—Kirkus Reviews

“Palmer’s first-hand knowledge of the Bosnian War means that this plot is spot on!”—Suspense Magazine

Praise for the novels of Matthew Palmer:


“A can’t-put-it-down thriller . . . Palmer’s 20 years in the U.S. Foreign Service helps infuse this book with authenticity.” —NPR.org

“Without question the best book I’ve read this year.” —Mystery Scene

“This is first-rate fiction.” —Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
