Upcoming Event
Tuesday, September 4, 2018 - 7:00pm to 8:00pm

Carpenter’s debut novel, Eleven Days, won praise from some of the most demanding critics for its powerful depiction of families in wartime. Her second book is a complex spy story that focuses on the fallout from a life of lies and deception. At the center of this rich web is Noel, a banker, stockbroker, single father to Anna, and CIA spy. Or was he really spying for the Chinese? It never occurred to Anna to ask, but when she meets a CIA case worker shortly after her father’s sudden death, everything she thought she knew is suddenly in question. Told in brief, sharp sections that alternate between Anna’s and the anonymous agent’s perspectives, Carpenter’s thriller explores profound questions of duplicity and betrayal.
