Evelyn Anthony began her writing career after meeting her husband in 1949. Primarily self-taught, she was educated at home during the War--first writing short stories for magazines. She went on to achieve success with her historical romances and espionage and thriller stories. Her novels have been selected for the American Literary Guild and The Tamarind Seed was made into a film starring Omar Sharif and Julie Andrews.From Booklist:
Davina Graham's always been "the plain but clever one" in her family. But that cleverness has helped her make a rapid ascent up the career ladder in the British SIS. Her latest assignment is debriefing Russian defector Ivan Sasanov, who has left his family behind in the still-oppressive Soviet Union of the late 1990s. When Sasanov is targeted for assassination by the Soviets, his wife arrested, and his daughter seduced by a KGB officer, he threatens to renege on his defection unless the SIS can rescue his family. Though she's never been a field agent, Davina offers to go to Russia and extract Sasanov's wife and daughter. What she doesn't count on is falling in love with him. Only after she's within Russia's borders does she learn that someone in the SIS is working for the Soviets, someone who knows every detail of the Sasanov rescue operation and plans to betray Davina to the KGB. A grand master of the espionage thriller, Anthony once again offers up a riveting read. Emily Melton
