Yael Azoulay, the covert negotiator for the U.N., nearly lost her life when she went rogue in Geneva. Now back in New York, she cannot refuse the U.N. secretary-general when he asks her to meet with the man at the dark heart of the American military-industrial complex. Working under the radar, Yael soon discovers a chilling conspiracy that reaches to Iran...and a dark secret from her past.
The end game is nothing less than a devasting - and very lucrative - new war in the Middle East. But the closer she comes to the truth, the more Yael exposes herself, laying bare a terrifying truth: that she has powerful enemies who neither forgive, nor forget.
"Highly recommended. Adam LeBor's new novel, The Washington Stratagem, is rich and fast-paced, but it is his very sure and experienced hand with international politics, dark-side politics, that make this book as good as it is."
