Damascus Station by David McCloskey

I am admittedly not an experienced reader of espionage, but I might just become one, having gobbled up this remarkable debut thriller. McCloskey, a former CIA analyst himself, writes a fascinating world of modern spycraft, with empathy in its scope and a driving story of CIA officer Sam Joseph and his asset Mariam Haddad, as they operate within the network of Assad’s Syrian Palace. There’s a bit of everything here, from forbidden romance to betrayal, loyalty to revenge; well-written and compelling to the end—I couldn’t get enough. —Melinda
