The author's writing style is very easy to listen to and the woman's voice on the audio CD is well acted but not overly so. The wife CIA agent (Kate) and her husband (Dexter) are characters that you can identify with easily if you are a wife and mother of young children. The twists and turns as well as clever flashbacks keep you guessing on how the book wil develop. Can't wait for the author's next book and it is a thriller that will keep you guessing and intereted.

A decent little thriller that flips the script on the usual "True Lies", leading a double life narrative. Kept my interest throughout.

This book has thriller moments, but it is more psychological overall. Kate Moore is a CIA agent who began desk work around the birth of her second child. Then she thought she was tired of it all, and when her husband proposed moving to Luxembourg for his job, she decided to become a stay-at-home mom. She immerses herself in her children's lives and tries to get comfortable in the large expat community in the small country she now calls home. But her husband is spending more time at work and is very secretive about his job. Another American expat who has befriended her has Kate suspicious of her, and she begins to wonder if her job is really something she can ever put in the past.
Kate begins to think and investigate and what she finds only increases her unease and suspicions.
This book is told in bits and pieces, looking back at various points of the life Kate lived in Luxembourg and the decisions she made there. 18 months later, she and her family are living in Paris, still expats, but more relaxed in their lives, until a sudden encounter has Kate rethinking all those months and questioning the story she thought she had unearthed then.
A great story, with interesting twists and turns. Kate is a complex character, and you see how she comes to terms with her life as the story progresses.
