Need to Know by Karen Cleveland

She works for the CIA and works on detecting spies.  She's married, has children and life is good.  At least it is until she finds out her husband is a Russian sleeper.  She should turn him in but she can't.  She loves him...

Ballantine Books and Net Galley allowed me to read this book for review (thank you).  It will be published January 23rd.

When she talks to him about it, he admits it.  Her world falls apart.  It just gets worse.  She tries to protect him and then the Russians begin to blackmail her into being an inside person in the CIA.  She does something that won't damage much, but the threats escalate.

This is a cat and mouse world with death hovering around the edges.  She believes in him but I'm not sure she should.  They live through this crisis but I don't think her troubles are over yet.

With lots of suspense and tension throughout the story, this author keeps you reading.  It's a scary look at how things can turn out even with the best of intentions.  Who do you trust?
