A novel of international espionage and personal vengeance from the author Lee Child called “better than John Le Carré.”
Many years ago, a young American spy crossed the wrong people and found himself on the wrong side of Headquarters. He soon fell into a slow, shameful decline of poverty and self-destruction. But Headquarters didn’t count on him having a son.
Now, years later, the boy is an American spy himself, serving two masters: Headquarters and his own insatiable need for revenge. Sent to Argentina to infiltrate a revolutionary group with deep ties to Russia, the young man finds himself dangerously drawn to his target’s daughter. Yet, despite the passion between them, he refuses to lose sight of his ultimate goal: destroying the institution that ruined his father all those years ago.
“Set in a post–9/11 world, [but] satisfyingly steeped in undercover tales of a particular vintage” (The Washington Post), Mulberry Bush is an intricate and sexy espionage thriller from one of the most acclaimed writers in the game.
“McCarry spins his riveting story in unexpected ways; the writing is always subdued but brilliant, leading unsuspecting readers to collide straight into the unforgiving wall of a stunning ending.” —Publishers Weekly, starred review
