Bestselling author Jennet Conant brings us a stunning account of Julia and Paul Child’s experiences as members of the Office of Strategic Services (OSS) in the Far East during World War II and the tumultuous years when they were caught up in the McCarthy Red spy hunt in the 1950s and behaved with bravery and honor. It is the fascinating portrait of a group of idealistic men and women who were recruited by the citizen spy service, slapped into uniform, and dispatched to wage political warfare in remote outposts in Ceylon, India, and China. The eager, inexperienced 6 foot 2 inch Julia springs to life in these pages, a gangly golf-playing California girl who had never been farther abroad than Tijuana. Single and thirty years old when she joined the staff of Colonel William Donovan, Julia volunteered to be part of the OSS’s ambitious mission to develop a secret intelligence network across Southeast Asia. Her first post took her to the mountaintop idyll of Kandy, the headquarters of Admiral Lord Louis Mountbatten, the supreme commander of combined operations. Julia reveled in the glamour and intrigue of her overseas assignment and lifealtering romance with the much older and more sophisticated Paul Child, who took her on trips into the jungle, introduced her to the joys of curry, and insisted on educating both her mind and palate. A painter drafted to build war rooms, Paul was a colorful, complex personality. Conant uses extracts from his letters in which his sharp eye and droll wit capture the day-to-day confusion, excitement, and improbability of being part of a cloak- and-dagger operation. When Julia and Paul were transferred to Kunming, a rugged outpost at the foot of the Burma Road, they witnessed the chaotic end of the war in China and the beginnings of the Communist revolution that would shake the world. A Covert Affair chronicles their friendship with a brilliant and eccentric array of OSS agents, including Jane Foster, a wealthy, free-spirited artist, and Elizabeth MacDonald, an adventurous young reporter. In Paris after the war, Julia and Paul remained close to their intelligence colleagues as they struggled to start new lives, only to find themselves drawn into a far more terrifying spy drama. Relying on recently unclassified OSS and FBI documents, as well as previously unpublished letters and diaries, Conant vividly depicts a dangerous time in American history, when those who served their country suddenly found themselves called to account for their unpopular opinions and personal relationships.

Την άνοιξη του 2008, στη Νέα Υόρκη, κι ενώ η Αµερική ολόκληρη κινείται στον ρυθµό των προεδρικών εκλογών, ο ΜάρκουςΓκόλντµαν, νεαρός και επιτυχηµένος συγγραφέας, περνάει τον δικό του γολγοθά: δεν είναι σε θέση να γράψει το καινούριο µυθιστόρηµα που πρέπει να παραδώσει στον εκδότη του µέσα σε λίγους µήνες. Η διορία του κοντεύει να τελειώσει, όταν ξαφνικά όλα παίρνουν άλλη τροπή για κείνον: ο φίλος του και πρώην καθηγητής του στο πανεπιστήµιο, ο Χάρρυ Κέµπερτ, ένας από τους επιφανέστερους συγγραφείς της χώρας, βλέπει το παρελθόν του να ξανάρχεται στην επιφάνεια και βρίσκεται να κατηγορείται πως δολοφόνησε, το 1975, τη Νόλα Κέλλεργκαν, ένα κορίτσι δεκαπέντε χρονών, µε το οποίο λέγεται πως διατηρούσε σχέση. Πεπεισµένος για την αθωότητα του Χάρρυ, ο Μάρκους εγκαταλείπει τα πάντα για να πάει στο Νιου Χαµσάιρ και να διεξαγάγει τη δική του έρευνα. Πολύ γρήγορα όµως τα γεγονότα τον ξεπερνούν: η έρευνα τελµατώνει και ο ίδιος αρχίζει να δέχεται απειλές. Αν θέλει να αθωώσει τον Χάρρυ και να σώσει τη συγγραφική του καριέρα, πρέπει να απαντήσει σε τρία ερωτήµατα: Ποιος σκότωσε τη Νόλα Κέλλεργκαν; Τι συνέβη στο Νιου Χαµσάιρ το καλοκαίρι του 1975; Και πώς γράφει κανείς ένα επιτυχηµένο µυθιστόρηµα; Το βιβλίο-φαινόµενο του άγνωστου νεαρού Ελβετού συγγραφέα που κατέκτησε τη Γαλλία και τον κόσµο. Ιστορία αγάπης και ιστορία µυστηρίου, η Αλήθεια για την υπόθεση Χάρρυ Κέµπερτ είναι ένα µοναδικό βιβλίο, από αυτά που γράφουν ιστορία… ΠΕΡΙΣΣΟΤΕΡΑ ΑΠΟ 2.000.000 ΑΝΤΙΤΥΠΑ ΜΕΤΑΦΡΑΖΕΤΑΙ ΣΕ 35 ΓΛΩΣΣΕΣ NO 1 BESTSELLER ΣΕ ΓΑΛΛIΑ, ΙΣΠΑΝIΑ, ΙΤΑΛIΑ, ΓΕΡMΑΝIΑ, ΟΛΛΑΝΔIA «Ο Ζοέλ Ντικέρ µαγεύει τους αναγνώστες... Υπέροχοι διάλογοι, πολυεπίπεδοι χαρακτήρες, καταιγιστικές ανατροπές και µια πλοκή που κόβει την ανάσα... όλα τέλεια ταιριασµένα σε µια ακαταµάχητη ιστορία όπου πραγµατικά τίποτα δεν είναι αυτό που φαίνεται...» Trouw «Ο Ντικέρ γράφει µια ιστορία τέτοιας δύναµης και µαεστρίας, που δε θέλεις µε τίποτα να τελειώσει.

Αναγνώστες νέοι και όχι και τόσο νέοι, απαιτητικοί και µη, γυναίκες και άντρες, όλοι θα διαβάσουµε από την πρώτη ως την τελευταία σελίδα το µυθιστόρηµα του Ζοέλ Ντικέρ.

Agent William Wright was called to the CIA Farm to witness the graduation of a Russian defector he recruited. Isla Gustoff wanted help in defecting to the West, while Wright was on a covert assignment in Czecholslavakia.

This man was one of the highest skilled individuals the CIA had trained, as he could speak five languages fluently. The new agent’s name was Petro Aposlolic, but while at the farm, he was known as Peter Post. He would prove beneficial within the clandestine Ops center in Moscow that Wright was forming. Peter and Isla were top in their class in self-defence to actual stalking of new subversive-acting agents on the streets of Washington, DC, who were told to evade them at all costs for training purposes.
