In this latest novel Stephen Carter ventures beyond the stories of African American professionals and academia, to tell an entirely different story of Jericho Ainslie, former Sec of Defense and head of the CIA who is dying but has secrets he wants to reveal before he dies. He calls his former lover Rebecca DeFord to his bedside and she gets swept up in a process of intrigue, espionage, lies and deception. Carter does a great job of holding the reader in suspense as we learn about what is going thru Rebecca's eyes. In the end we know something has happened, but what we are not exactly sure. While I think I enjoyed some of Carter's earlier novels more, this one is the most suspenseful and therefore well worth the read.
