When ex-CIA agent Vera Kelly loses her job and her girlfriend in a single day, she reluctantly goes into business as a private detective. Heartbroken and cash-strapped, she takes a case that dredges up dark memories and attracts dangerous characters from across the Cold War landscape. Before it's over, she'll chase a lost child through foster care and follow a trail of Dominican exiles to the Caribbean.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'Rosalie Knecht is an audacious talent, and her latest novel a propulsive, subversive gem. [Vera is] one of the most compelling and complex characters in modern fiction... an intriguing mystery that will keep you guessing until the very end' - Lauren Wilkinson, author of American Spy; 'Rosalie Knecht has resurrected the detective novel for the 21st century. Sharp, self-possessed, and with a nuanced, meaningful knowledge of realities and histories well beyond her own, Kelly's take on who's lying and why makes for riveting reading in every scene. I tore through this book' - Idra Novey, author of Those Who Knew; 'Impossible to put down and just begging for a third installment' - Bookpage; 'This winning literary page-turner gives a strong sense of a smart, queer, and complex person navigating an unfriendly world' - Publishers Weekly; 'Readers will be thrilled by Vera Kelly's return' - Kirkus
