Revere Falk - FBI veteran, Arabic speaker - is an interrogator at Gitmo, assigned to a hold-out, a Yemeni prisoner who may have valuable information about al Qaeda. But these duties are temporarily suspended when the body of an American soldier is found washed ashore in Cuban territory. No American has ever turned up dead on the wrong side of the fence before.

Suddenly, Cold War tension is back and Falk finds himself at the heart of it when he's put in charge of the investigation into the death. Almost immediately he senses an unusual level of interest in the proceedings: from his commander, from the Cubans, and from the various factions of the military. And when the Defense Intelligence Agency unexpectedly sends its own team to reinforce the investigation, Falk understands that there is much more at stake than anybody is willing to say.

Now, he is drawn into a game of evasion and pursuit, a game whose stakes spike dangerously when a figure from his past reappears - someone who knows secrets about him that he had hoped were buried forever. Download and start listening now!

    " Decent beach or vacation reading no more than that. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Gail | 12/25/2013

    " I learned a bit about Guantanamo in this political thriller. I did think the plot got a bit muddled in the latter part, but it had enough interest to keep me going till the end. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Carrie | 12/15/2013

    " Very good from Fesperman - good insight into Guantanamo. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Julie | 12/9/2013

    " Fascinating behind the scenes look at the prison on Guantanamo, fictionalized, but written by a journalist who's been there. Pretty good story too. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Serge | 12/9/2013

    " Had its moments, but I can't say it took me by storm. The main character is very interesting, but the story was less than I expected. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Pete | 7/18/2012

    " I am a real fan of Dan Fesperman's book, so much so that my lovely wife arranged for several signed copies in correspondence with Dan himself. And my S-i-L picked them up and delivered them. Thanks Kathleen, Dan, and Cindy! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Marg | 7/8/2012

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sandra | 5/3/2012

    " It started out slow, took me a long time to read, but the pace picked up and it had a great ending. I would recommend this author and this book to someone who is looking for something new in the spy genre. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Penni | 2/4/2012

    " Dan Fesperman writes fiction that is based in facts gathered by a a journalist. This novel is a fast read that is chilling in its the level of detail about what our current administration's political beliefs have allowed us to do and become. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Mark | 10/17/2011

    " The novel is a nice "summer read." The body of an American soldier washes ashore in Cuban space and there may be spies among the Americans at Guantanamo. Special Agent Faulk investigates "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Elliot Richards | 9/25/2011

    " It starts off as quite promising, and continued to be a page turner throughout, but it's anti-climactic ending and its somewhat muddled writing in the last part of the book left me woefully underwhelmed. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rick F. | 8/19/2011

    " PLOT BECAME MUCH TOO MUDDLED - WITH SO MANY CHARACTERS- AND UNCLEAR RESOLUTION- AT END- I WAS NOT SURE OF WHAT ACTUALLY HAPPENED- WELL WRITTEN,GOOD CHARACTERS, BUT LACKED COHERANT PLOT AND A CONCLUSION THAT CONNECTED ALL THE DOTS "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Bob | 7/19/2011

    " A work of fiction which raises many questions about Gitmo. "

    " Likeable characters, great plot twists. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Julie | 6/29/2011

    " After reading my first Dan Fesperman book, I eagerly put a few more on hold. I didn't even finish this one. It was just never grabbed me the way The Amateur Spy did. "

    " The story of how an FBI interrogator handles a Yemeni prisoner who may
    have valuable information about al-Qaeda. This author is a slow mover.
    I couldn't wait for the story line to develop.
