Fascinating from start to finish. The unsung heroes in the CIA, never given proper credit for their achievements in a "man's world," these women are finally being acknowledged. Mundy does a great job in revealing their character to persevere and dedicate themselves to keeping America's spy network secret. Through their work and attention to detail, they were able to track the elusive Osama bin Laden is just one example of their achievements. 

Great read and a story worth reading.

Northern Spy: Reese's Book Club (A Novel) By Flynn Berry Cover Image

Published: Penguin Books - April 5th, 2022

I'm not usually a mystery/suspense reader but this surprised me! I was engrossed in the back and forth spy/terrorist plight sisters Tessa and Marian get into as Belfast lives on edge of the Irish Republican Army's next strike. A riveting story from an Edgar Award-winning author about where your loyalties lie, sisterhood and new motherhood, and doing what you believe to be the right thing.
