9780006497707: Masquerade

This scintillating, all-action thriller based on a highly secret American government operation has won debut author Gayle Lynds widespread acclaim as ‘the female Robert Ludlum’.

A woman awakes in a room she doesn’t recognise, next to a husband she doesn’t know, with no memory of her life or her past. She is told she is Liz Sansborough, a top US intelligence agent. But is she? The only thing that is certain is that somebody is trying to kill her. Sent to a CIA camp to regain her expert skills, Liz is given her deadly assignment: she must bring in the world’s most lethal international assassin, a man known only by his alias, the Carnivore.

Rapidly entangled in a lethal masquerade, she comes to suspect that she is not Liz Sansborough at all, and that her CIA colleagues are the ones plotting to kill her. As she sets out to determine her true identity, she uncovers a multi-billion-dollar conspiracy that threatens to destroy the financial markets of Europe, and the world.

Review:

‘The rush-to-the-next-page excitement never stops.’
Clive Cussler

‘A bravura performance by Gayle Lynds, whose maiden race in the international thriller sweepstakes should make
“the boys”
turn around and take note. Watch out Robert Ludlum, she’s coming up fast on your left!’
Sue Grafton

‘More chase scenes than a James Bond film… Ms Lynds knows how to propel her people into action.’
New York Times

‘Edgy, tricky, very much in the mode of Robert Ludlum – a gloriously paranoid, immensely satisfying international thriller.’
Los Angeles Times

From the Back Cover:

A woman awakes in a room she doesn't recognize, next to a husband she doesn't know, with no memory of her life or her past. She is told she is Liz Sansborough, a top US intelligence agent. But is she? The only thing that is certain is that somebody is trying to kill her. Sent to a CIA camp to regain her expert skills, Liz is given her deadly assignment: she must bring in the world's most lethal international assassin, a man known only by his alias, the Carnivore.

Rapidly entangled in a lethal masquerade, she comes to suspect that she is not Liz Sansborough at all, and that the CIA colleagues she has come to trust are perhaps the ones plotting to kill her. Together with her single ally, rogue intelligence operative Asher Flores, Liz sets out to determine her true identity, and in doing so uncovers a multi-billion-dollar conspiracy that threatens to destroy the financial markets of Europe, and the world.

''Masquerade' is a fantastic read. I could not put this book down.'
JOHN T. LESCROART, author of 'The 13th Juror'

''Masquerade' is a bravura performance by Gayle Lynds, whose maiden race in the international thriller sweepstakes should make "the boys" turn around and take note. Watch out Robert Ludlum! She's coming up fast on your left.'
