Joseph Kanon - Defectors

Upcoming Event
Sunday, June 11, 2017 - 5:00pm to 6:00pm

In his latest literary spy thriller, Kanon, the Edgar Award-winning author of books including Leaving Berlin and The Good German, which served as the basis for the George Clooney-Cate Blanchett film, dramatizes the divided loyalties and difficult moral terrain of the Cold War. Focusing on the charismatic Frank Weeks, a wunderkind of the newly established CIA, Kanon follows Frank’s 1949 exposure as a Soviet agent and subsequent disappearance behind the Iron Curtain. Twelve years later, when Frank writes his memoirs, he summons his brother to edit the manuscript. But more than a family reunion is at stake when Simon joins Frank in Moscow, and the suspense rises as the Weeks brothers are caught between the CIA and the KGB.
