Leo Hoffman is a man of many contradictions. He's a Hungarian national traveling on a French passport, a wealthy businessman with no visible means of support, and a devoted father who hasn't seen his daughter in years. He is also a spy.
Recruited by the Allies to help lay the groundwork for their invasion of North Africa, Leo intends to do as little spying as possible; he just wants earn his American citizenship, get to New York, and find his daughter. But while Leo dodges death in Morocco, two women from his past conspire to make sure he never gets that chance.
As she did in Silent Lies, M.L. Malcolm vividly recaptures rarely-explored pieces of the past by blending real historical figures with fascinating fictional characters.
From the Allies' early espionage efforts during World War II to Robert Kennedy's war on the mafia twenty years later, Deceptive Intentions tells the riveting story of two families struggling with the choices that war forced them to make, and the consequences that take a generation to unfold.
