Simon & Schuster Australia (simonschusteraustralia) | 37 comments Hello again everyone, we have some new wonderful ARCs of a brilliant debut thriller, Liar's Candle, set in the US embassy in Turkey. An intelligent, fast-paced spy novel for fans of Olen Steinhauser and Joseph Kanon.

One young woman, Penny Kessler, finds herself at the centre of a deadly plot and marked for death...she is the woman who knows too much. After a bombing at the US Embassy in Ankara, Turkey, Penny is one of the few to survive and is a crucial witness. In a race to keep from being killed and to uncover the truth, Penny reluctantly partners with Connor Beauregard, a rookie CIA officer on his first overseas assignment. But the two won’t survive unless they can outwit - and outmaneuver - everyone from the Turkish president and his daughter to Islamic extremists, to the US State Department, to the CIA itself.

August Thomas began this novel at age twenty three. Fluent in Turkish, she has traveled and studied in Turkey as the recipient of a Fulbright Scholarship, and holds Master’s degrees from Bogaziçi, Istanbul’s top public university, as well as the University of Edinburgh.
