Jaime Lynde would stop at nothing to find the truth.
As a child, she was told her father was dead, but one by one, the lies began to unravel. James Lynde was an operative for the OSS during World War II, and later for the CIA. In 1986, he was still alive and working undercover in Libya.
As Jaime followed his trail, a traitor followed hers…and the US prepared to take military action.
“Beishir pens a winner with this gripping thriller…she confidently builds to a revelatory and spellbinding finale.” -Publishers Weekly-
Norma Beishir can’t remember ever wanting to be anything but a writer (okay, there was that brief period, age six through nine, when she wanted to be a jockey….). Once she was bitten by the bug, she didn’t want to do anything but write. She got in trouble in class on a regular basis for writing when she should have been doing classwork–or paying attention to her teachers.
At sixteen, she naively sent a handwritten manuscript to a major publisher. She actually got a response. An editor had taken the time to read her manuscript and respond, writing that she had talent but wasn’t yet ready for publication. (Just try to get an editor to do that these days. You’re lucky to get the notorious form letter.)
She sold her first novel fifteen years later and has been writing ever since. After fourteen conventionally-published novels, she made the switch to self-publishing with Chasing the Wind in 2008–a decision she’s never regretted.
