A few years before the fall of the Berlin Wall, spook-turned-novelist Edwin Lemaster reveals to young journalist Bill Cage that he'd once considered spying for the enemy. More than two decades later, Cage receives an anonymous note hinting that he should have dug deeper. The note is the first of many literary bread crumbs that soon lead him back to Vienna, Prague, and Budapest in search of the truth, even as the events of Lemaster's past eerily--and dangerously--begin intersecting with those of his own. As the suspense steadily increases, a long stalemate of secrecy may finally be broken.

This powerfully suspenseful new novel from Dan Fesperman takes us deep into the early 1940s in Switzerland and Germany as it traces the long reach of the wartime intrigues of the White Rose student movement, which dared to speak out against Hitler.
When Nat Turnbull, a history professor who specializes in the German resistance, gets the news that his estranged mentor, Gordon Wolfe, has been arrested for possession of stolen World War II archives, he's hardly surprised that, even at the age of eighty-four, Gordon has gotten himself in trouble. But what's in the archives is staggering: a spymaster's trove missing since the end of the war, one that Gordon has always claimed is full of "secrets you can't find anywhere else . . . "live" ammunition."
Yet key documents are still missing, and Nat believes Gordon has hidden them. The FBI agrees, and when Gordon is found dead in jail, the Bureau dispatches Nat to track down the material, which has also piqued the interest of several dangerous competitors. As he follows a trail of cryptic clues left behind by Gordon, assisted by an attractive academic with questionable motives, Nat's quest takes him to Bern and Berlin, where his path soon crosses that of Kurt Bauer, an aging German arms merchant still hoarding his own wartime secrets. As their stories--and Gordon's--intersect across half a century, long-buried exploits of deceit, devotion, and doomed resistance begin working their way to the surface. And as the stakes rise, so do the risks . . .

The Prisoner of Guant?namo: 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 a dead 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. As he is drawn into a game of evasion and pursuit, a figure from his past reappears - someone who knows secrets about him that he had hoped were buried forever. The Amateur Spy: Burned out by years of humanitarian-aid work, Freeman and Mila Lockhart have retreated to an idyllic Greek island. But on the first night of their new life they are surprised by three intruders who seem to know everything about Freeman - including a haunting secret. They use it to blackmail him into spying on an old Palestinian friend in Jordan. In suburban Washington, D.C., meanwhile, a prosperous Palestinian-American couple, Abbas and Aliyah Rahim, are still grieving for their daughter, accidentally killed while vacationing abroad. Aliyah fears her husband blames the bureaucrats and may be reeling toward fanaticism, and her efforts to avert this take her to Jordan. As their paths converge, Freeman and Aliyah - both desperately worried about the loved ones they left behind - must swiftly separate fact from illusion, enemy from friend. The consequences of failure could be catastrophic. . . .

A few years before the fall of the Berlin Wall, spook-turned-novelist Edwin Lemaster revealed to up-and-coming journalist Bill Cage that he?d once considered spying for the enemy. For Cage, a Foreign Service brat who grew up in the very cities where Lemaster's books were set, the news story created a brief but embarrassing sensation and heralded the beginning of the end of his career in journalism. More than two decades later, Cage, now a lonely, disillusioned PR man, receives an anonymous note hinting that he should have dug deeper into Lemaster's pronouncement. Spiked with cryptic references to some of Cage's favorite spy novels, the note is the first of many literary bread crumbs that lead him back to Vienna, Prague, and Budapest, each instruction drawing him closer to the complex truth, each giving rise to more questions: Why is beautiful Litzi Strauss back in his life after thirty years? How much of his father's job involved the CIA? As the events of Lemaster's past eerily ? and dangerously ? begin intersecting with those of Cage's own, a ?long stalemate of secrecy? may finally be coming to an end. A story about spies and their secrets, fathers and sons, lovers and fate, duplicity and loyalty, The Double Game ingeniously taps the espionage classics of the Cold War to build a spellbinding maze of intrigue. It is Dan Fesperman's most audacious, suspenseful, and satisfying novel yet.
